Two spanners together ..... utter bodgery and to be avoided at all costs !!
Your man was obviously well trained thats why he may never have heard of the method. Now he does it all the time he has slid well down the ladder.

Though I have to admit I have used the method ......

If it's a plastic tank, can you not use a soldering iron on it and plastic weld( melt ) it together as a temperery fix?.

Oh an' plenty of Plusgas/WD40/whatever it's called where you are!
.................... an' if that don't do it - a 2mm arc rod run along the chisel mark and get swinging on the spanner before the nut cools.
obviously the bigger the nut, the bigger the chisel/rod!
The nut's almost certainly nadgered by now, so you can repeat it on all flats if necessary, or just split it, either with a cold chisel, or a hydraulic nut splitter...........if you can get the damned thing in there, as it will almost always have come under Sod's jurisdiction and there's just not quite enough room
Drilling through the nut parallel to the stud or bolt makes it easier to expand or split.

A new tank ASAP... That's the last thing you want splitting in half!

One my tyre fitted does, if a new tyre isn't sealing onto the rim he puts a ratchet strap all the way around it , which squishes it into the rim..
