New to the forum. Just purchased a 1984 atc 250r. Fuel tank is extremely rusted! Tried a few acid solutions which only partly worked. Does anyone have any tricks for removing rust? I’m about a day away from cutting it in half then welding the tank. All suggestions needed. Thank you. In Phx Az.

Back when I was a ked I had an atc110 that had rust in the tank. My dad scooped up a jar full of pea gravel off the side of the road. We put the gravel in the tank with a couple cups of gas. Shook the hell out of it for a while. Then dumped it out and repeated the process until the tank was clean.

It's not the most sophisticated method that's for sure lol.

Thanks to all. The rocks got most of the big chunks off. Used pool acid for the rest(muriatic). All the rust is gone. Just gotta get a sealer.
