Would electrical tape wrapped around a lawn mower fuel line stop a leak at least temporarily?
It probably would if it's a small leak, but I wouldn't depend on it. All I can picture in my mind is the tape coming loose or the hole getting bigger while I'm using it, the gas getting on the hot engine, and the whole thing catching on fire. My suggestion would be finding a neighbor who would let you use theirs until yours gets fixed properly.
Yeah it can temporarily seal it provided you apply it well but I would recommend you get that leak fixed permanently as wrapping with electrical tape will be a temporary measure. You may use a seal mixture like the ones used by plumbers. Just take a piece of that doughy seal(see that it is non inflammable) and apply on the leaking area and let it set. After that apply a tape over it for a temporary measure.
