I use straight white vinegar to remove rust.I start by emptying the tank.Then I allow it to sit open and completely dry out.Then I put the tank back together and use vacuum caps to plug the fuel valve petcock.Next I fill the tank with vinegar and cap the tank.I let it sit over night.The next day,I shake the tank hard while rotating it making sure the vinegar covers all areas inside the tank.Then I drain the tank and rinse out with water.If it still has rust,I pour the vinegar back in the tank through a funnel with a coffee filter in it to strain out the debris.For really bad tanks,it has taken me nearly a week to get them clean enough to coat with POR-15.Vinegar here is $3 a gallon so it's cheaper than most other solutions.

2005 Kawasaki VN 800 Vulcan Classic how to properly clean and seal a rusty fuel tank


Hi, Scott to properly fix fuel contamination issues you must start at the source the "GAS TANK" you will need to buy a gas tank rust remover and metal prep solution system, go online and research the different products available, stay away from rust converters and liquid Kreem liners, I recommend POR15 because it stops rust permanently you will also need some nuts and bolts ball bearings etc. and a service manual.
1. Remove the tank and drain all fuel and let dry.
2. Remove petcock and filter or fuel pump and filter.
3. Seal all openings except the top fuel filler opening with tape, plugs, or rubber *******.
4. Fill the tank with a strong solution of Dawn soap and water, seal the opening and shake vigorously for 1 minute and let sit for 30 minutes, remove the gas cap and pour out contents, rinse with a garden hose or pressure washer and let dry thoroughly.
4. Pour in 1/2 cup of nuts, bolts, ball bearings, etc. and seal the opening, shake vigorously for 2 minutes.
5. Open the gas cap and shake out all nuts and bolts along with dirt and rust, use a flashlight to inspect results and repeat as necessary until all rust is removed.
6. Following the directions of your rust remover product begin the procedure of removing residual rust, remember bare metal when dry will start to rust/oxidize immediately so make your last step a final rinse of solvent or kerosene anything that has a petroleum base, your first tank of fuel will mix with the residual solvent and not damage your fuel system.
7. Properly clean or replace all fuel filters, petcock, and fuel lines.
8. Remove and disassemble carburetor/s and properly clean all parts use a carburetor dip if necessary for the really bad ones.
9. For you injected folks use carb cleaner for the injectors and fuel rails and test with battery jumpers for proper function. If you're not in a hurry I recommend the services of Injectorrx.com

Why does my TVS Apache 150 overheat?


Hi, Hasan and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

I have TVS Apache 150. It has problem with ignition and spark. The current in the wire is not coming properly. Mostly is happens due to rain. I have taken my bike to mechanic several time regarding this...


Water may be getting into the spark plug wire. Remove spark plug wire, use a little silicone around the inside of each end and reinstall. See if that helps.

Need new gas tank


A couple things you can do here...

1) Drain the tank, blow it dry using compressed air, and get all the rust out that you can. Use an acid wash / rinse to help remove the rest of the rust. Coat the tank inside with a tank sealer like that from kbs-coatings or caswell.

2) Have a metal shop make you a new tank that will approximate the old one.

3) Install a fuel filter that will catch the rust particles (left over after blowing it out) and be done with it

4) Use an external fuel tank (marine comes to mind) instead of onboard fuel tank.

Sometimes my truck won't start and I have to press the gas pedal all the way to get it to start. What should i do?


i had the same problem. The fuel pump and gas tanks. Over time the gas tanks can collet rust that will mix with your fuel and clog the fuel pump. Get the gas tanks cleaned out or replaced then get a new fuel pump and line.
