Gas Leak

Fuel leaked on the top of my fuel tank - maybe an O-ring or something. Are the streaks on the finish permanent or can I buff them out?

Thanks

I had a big fuel "stain/streak" on my tank from the PO when I first brought it home. Soap and water, a little wax . . . can't tell any gas had ever touched it.
