RE: New mopar kind of
Well the jeep sat for over 4 years before I bought it. I pulled the fuel tank yesterday to look at it, wow it sucked. I was just going to toss it and buy new, but after seeing they cost over 400.00 and I am cheap Laugh something else had to be done.
After some internet reading I decided to use diluted muriatic acid. After 12 hours the results are looking good. The fuel gauge float was terrible, it was rusted so bad you couldn't tell it had gears. You can see where the acid worked on it. The fuel pick up tube was not as bad but you can see the line.

The whole tank came out clean. The only problem left is the previous owner put a liquid tank liner in it and it is peeling. I have got about all of it out.

Those suck. Tried that on my dad's old Duster when it was rusting internally.

It was peeling before I used the acid, now it's pulling off in sheets.

Pretty sure the ethanol blends don't help those liners. Glad the acid is making the removal go well. We had to get a new tank.

Put the new fuel tank in, 2 batteries, oil change, cleaned points and plugs. Good news it starts and runs, bad news it appears to need a fuel pump. Laugh at least it runs.

Always loved the tank placement. Perfect place to sit when Incendiaries are flying
