    Thanks Pramod. No idea n not yet decided regarding sealing.. Since painting was done four years back, had no other choice..

    Day 2. Not much happy with the electrolysis result.. Achieved 70 percent result from expected.. Think its enough rusting.. Will move to engine work..

    The biggest issue with a rusted tank is it will take out the fuel tap, fuel filter and most importantly the carburettor. its advisable to go for a new tank.
