    Rusty Fuel Tank

    So I've finally gotten around to pulling my fuel tank in my 96. I knew it was going to be rusty, but not this rusty! It's got about a 1/8th to 1/4 of rust/gunk build up on the inside. Anyone know how to get it off? I've been reading around, and a lot of people suggest getting about a 1/4 to 1/2 a foot of metal chain and dropping that inside with some gas, then shaking it around. I feel like I'd be doing that for days though! Any tips? Thanks.

    There are some videos on Youtube. Solutions range from using rocks to certain chemicals. The one with the chemicals would be my choice.
