« on: March 31, 2017, 05:06:26 PM »
The gas tank I have is rusty and I was wondering if there is a good way to restore it so I can use it again.

Follow the directions.

I use Redkote, and it has always worked great.  Make sure it's ethanol resistant.  All of these sealers require you to follow the instructions exactly or you will risk it breaking down or peeling.

+1 on POR15

If the rust is not that bad and the tank is not leaking, YAMALUBE FUEL TANK RUST REMOVER & NEUTRALIZER KIT will work too.
This one does not put sealant layer so not subject to the peeling.
