I agree with Wayne on getting the tank to a shop to have it done if possible. Trouble is there are fewer shops doing that now and finding one that will do it for less than the cost of a new tank may be impossible. When I had my 48 F-3 tank done in 2006 we had a radiator shop in town and he did it for about $65. When I checked on having my 49 F-1 tank done last year the shop was gone and I was given a price to do it from $200-$300 by shops out of the area. I eventually did it myself using electrolysis to clean the rust out and a three part kit by Bill Hirsh products to seal it. Bill Hirsh sells the only gas tank cleaning and sealing process that I know of that gasohol will not deteriorate over time. I am very satisfied with the results....
