If my car's gas tank was hit, will that be considered a total loss?

"I got in an accident where my gas tank was hit. I'm wondering if I'm going to be compensated for total loss or just the cost of repairs."

“Your car insurance company or a repair shop hired to assess the damage will determine whether or not it’s considered a total loss.
Total loss means the cost of repairs is more than the vehicle is worth (or 75% of vehicle worth), so it depends on the type of car and the extent of the damage.”
