Wow Joe, You must have scared them all with that four letter word "rust". There is rust and there is rust. You probably need to be more specific about how much rust or suffer the consequences of object silence. My first XT tank had rust particles that I was able to shake out for 3 hours with agitation while full of diesel fuel, but once rinsed, and accompanied by an inline filter, it served me for several years (and traded to another forum member for more use when replaced by a similar tank with fewer dents). I'd also point out that your tank will cost about $25 to ship within the US. I shipped one to Washington from NM for about $26 using UPS. I've got no irons in this fire other than being a great fan of the looks and performance potential of the XT350 tank on the TW. I'm just not into the pointed cone head look of the Clarkes, but I'd probably acclimate to it if I had one. Woops, I'm not trying to turn this thread into a name throwing contest about beauty and tanks. Good luck. Tom

hi tom,

thanks for the advice. it's a good looking tank and only has light rust inside. i'm not sure why no bites, as i have seen wonders done with acid baths etc. and this tank isn't bad. oh well we'll i can always put it on the bay, but that entails more hassle.
