I heard of a guy who had a similar problem. He put in ball bearings and shook the gas tank big time. When he got most of the rust out he rinced the tank, washed it out and then sealed the tank. That way the sealer has something to grab onto rather than just old rust that may peal away and cause problems in the future.

I would strongly not recommend any liquid rust removers unless you remove all the components of your tank, like the pet**** valve and fill cap. The very acids that remove the rust are the same acids that will eat the softer metals up...... like aluminum.
