Default Now what?

Great post, pplassm. Now there’s nothing for anybody else to say about rusty tanks, and we’ll slide back into one of those helmet law–tiered licensing flame wars. Thanks a lot!

This place was reviewed in Motorcycle Cruiser. they have a non-toxic rust removal product that looks to be worth checking out.

??? I've used it a few times with good results. Perhaps just use the acid prep if you you don't like the coating. It does take the rust out.



There's another product out there that is supposed to work even better, but the name escapes me right now.

If you follow the instructions TO THE LETTER, and coat every bit of the inside including the inside of the filler-neck and the pet*****-nipple, it will last. I have a tank that was Kreem'd over Seven Years ago - absolutely NO problems with it. Even if I have trouble THIS year, I'll just get another kit and recoat it.



That said, on a tank of more than 2-3 gallons, you might consider an extra bottle of the sealant (even though they advertise a kit will do a 4-gallon tank, I would have liked to make the coating a bit thicker and would have bought an extra bottle if I'd known).



There are other products as well - I've had friends use POR-15 with excellent results (if you FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!! dammit!)

Or, just enrich the OEM and buy a New Tank.
