rusty gas tank

I was reading Ron's directions for taking care of a rusty tank. I just have a couple of questions. First of all, i have a shut off valve I'm going to be replacing, can I just use that instead of rigging up another way to drain the acid?

Also, just so I'm completely clear, once I get the acid out, then I need to rinse with water and then just hope it dries out before more rust can form? My tank is not detachable. How long should I wait before adding the dry gas?

Thanks - it's going to be my project this weekend and I just want to get ready.
