You can always replace the gas tank, but why not try to clean it before investing in a new one? If the tank is damaged, dirty and rusty beyond repair, you’d have to replace it anyway. However, if there are only mild corrosion and dirt, you can probably clean it. This is a good way to avoid added expenses of replacing the tank altogether.
Keep in mind that strong acids can damage your bike and possibly cause serious injury. That is why white vinegar is recommended because it is strong enough to remove rust while remaining safe for your bike and your health. When working with chemicals and fuels, ventilation is essential. It is better to be safe and move outdoors.
This is how I clean my 1995 Honda Magna VT250 motorcycle gas tank.
The entire process is relatively simple and doesn’t take too much time.
