fuel tank derusting

I've done some tank derusting. I've used electrolysis, phosphoric acid, and Metal Rescue.

First question; how bad rusty is it? If it just has a rusty spot or two and you don't want to follow with a liner then I'd highly recommend using Metal Rescue or Evapo-Rust and be done with it.

If there is a lot of rust, the best easiest way to deal with it is with a solution of phosphoric acid. You'll have to follow with a liner or it will rust again in short order. I like the Caswell epoxy liner.
