Epoxy for Fuel System


I have had a little mishap while replacing the fuel tank in a vehicle. There is a long white plastic manifold at the front of the tank (see video)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c31T7WmjSjM
which is a part of the fuel evaporative emissions control (EVAP) system, best shown in the clip at 0:12.

The purpose of this manifold is to contain fuel fumes, and route them to the engine for burning when it is running. The manifold has cracked and I would like to repair this rather than go to the hassle of obtaining another one. There are a couple of reasons for this, mainly, 1) the part is not available commercially, and 2) the tank must be removed for this and it is a lot of work with no lift.

The only epoxy I have right now is Gorilla Epoxy https://www.gorillatough.com/product/gorilla-epoxy/
It claims "superior solvent resistance", but on the packet it also says "not recommened for polyethylene and polypropylene plastics"

Simply, can I use this (or can anybody recommend a product).
