Seriously, it should work. Electroysis is pretty neat. I used to work in at a company that produced vinyl records and got to work in the plating shop. You can reverse the current and take the plating off. Electrolysis might work better than any other method.

Also, I've had fuel tanks welded a few times and the thing to do is after draining all the fuel from the tank put a garden hose in it and run water through the tank for an hour. It doesn't have to flow very fast but it'll remove the fumes and pretty much eliminate any fire hazard.

For all the effort involved I'd rather take the d@mn tank to the radiator repair shop and have them dip it for $20. It'll remove rust, paint, logos, skin anomalies.

I think Japan ran out of every color other than black this year.
