If your tank stickers havnt got holes punched in them they will continue to bubble and peel off due to the petrol leeching out through the plastic tank. About your only option is to empty your tank between rides.
If only the corners are lifting try superglue.
Remember, sticker kits are like girlfriends, they come and go and you always seem to find a better looking version to replace the old worn out one with.

If its just the corners, get some good double sided tape - it works well.

Aparently 3M have a spary adhesive that works well but do a little research as I'm not entirely sure weather it may be "too sticky" for your application.

see here:

As for using super glue... probably not a good idea if you do not wish to damage the tank. Some super glue can also have a melting/buring effect on some plastic's so I'd steer away from that idea..

I go around the edge of the sticker with clear nail polish. It won't harm the plastics and it won't come off with the pressure washer. A couple of coats does the trick. And too get them off, just use nail polish remover. Easy
