I mentioned this in a another post but I think it fell to the wayside.

I'd like to clean my tank out. But dont want to have to remove all the rear of the bike. I just got it all back together after tire changeout and rear differential swap. SO I'm not inclined to have to do all this stuff again.

I've done some checking on the Rusteco. Looks like a good product without removing the tank and all the other stuff. Its running $125 for 5 gal.

What about this Evapo-Rust? Looks like it may do the same thing and is cheaper per gal.

I've seen it listed for $15 agal to $21

Here it is for $14.95 http://www.asseenontv.com/prod-pages/evapo-rust.html



Anybody on the forum tried this ? JR

According to your AS SEEN ON TV link, that stuff is $15 per QUART. I think I'd rather live with a little rust...

It also is listed on ebay for $70 for 5 gal dehydrated version. I guess you just add water to make 5 gals. Interesting stuff. Its still less than Rusteco. JR

Evapo-Rust is amazing stuff. It truly works as they claim. The rust must be immersed in the liquid or have a pump circulating it over the rusted item, on something large like a car fender or body panel.I believe a gallon in an MC tank would work pretty well if you shook it around every half hour or so while tinkering in the shop some weekend. The amount of time it is in contact with the rust is whats important. If you leave an item immersed too long it will turn kind of black, not a coating , more of a stain. It will scrub off with soap and water if it really bothers you, but it is not a film or layer that will seperate from the surface.
I have no affiliation with them, but I do have 3 gallons in a plastic container near the sink because its fun to throw some rusty relic in and be amazed at how it comes out.
There is another product available over the net called "Worlds Greatest Rust Remover" or something like that. About the same price but you need to pay shipping. Works the same.

My biggest concern with Evapo-Rust is their direction that once the tank is empty and dry, you must fill it immediately in order to prevent "flash-rust" or the rust coming back.

I realize Rusteco is a bit more expensive, but you don't have to worry about the rust returning.
