I know coke is not good for you but it did an amazing job on rust. A non toxic inexpensive way to remove rust from metal. I was going to consider electrolysis but figured it was a more complicated and messy than I would like.

I had recently purchased a 2003 vtx 1800 with 4k on it, noticed the tank had rust as the dummy did not put $10 of gas to avoid the problem (I did low ball him to compensate for the grief, though)

I had soaked it for about 2 days and had to only minor scubbing with a brush on the rough areas

I had heard it was great for that, but never had a confirmation or tried it myself. Now we know.

So, does it have to be regular or does Diet Coke work as well? (Sticky parts with full sugar stuff would be a pain in the butt..)

coke as a rust cleaner

Old trick I learned as a police officer in a cage. Ever get that oily film on your windshield in the rain and it won't come off with wipers? Just get a coke and pour it on the windshield with the wipers on and the film comes right off.
