Question about Coleman Powermate Premium Plus 6250W Portable Generator
About a 20yr old generator
gas left in it that long after running only 2hrs.
looks new except gas tank is full of rust.
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.
