Whatever method you use to clean out the majority of the rust, the key thing to do is seal the inside of the gas tank afterwards. A lot of the guys are using Caswell's sealant now(find it on their website) . I have used it successfully on about 5 tanks now and highly recommend it. It is a 2-part epoxy that is unaffected by ethanol. They do have a Canadian distributor.
I would not recommend the use of the Kreem brand of sealant. I've read a lot of complaints about ethanol in the gasoline causing it to come apart and cause all kinds of problems. Caswell's is recommended.
I have heard people mention using Muriatic Acid to clean out an old tank...does anyone know where it can be purchased?
I too have a tank that I wish to clean out but I am debating on sealing it or just filling it with gas as the pervious poster mentioned...
