Unless your tank is completely rusted out, why not treat the inside with POR-15 ?

I have done a few and once treated the rust doesn't return BUT you must take your time and do the job thoroughly

If there is rust in your tank there will be rust in your fuel tap too Easy enough to strip and clean

Yes that would be great if you have broke down by the dump,nearly left it there has since drained a gallon of brown petrol and about half a pint of rust particles ,the tank is very bad inside would be easier to get another tank as I've spent so much time on this bike that other bikes have been neglected too many toys I'm told !!!

I will do in the future but I've just finished doing a BSA tank and I'm in no rush to do that job again in a hurry !!

I let my old tank dry out, and then blew out most of the rust with an airline, then rinsed the tank through with parafin a few times and drained the rest out.
Put in an inline filter and never looked back. Simples. 😉
