Hi Cookster:

If you use phosphoric acid (i.e. automotive rust remover) you don't need to worry about rust forming right away. The phosphoric acid reacts with the metal and makes a protective "tarnish". You can rinse the tank out with water (followed by gas) without fear.

I no longer recommend using muriatic acid because it doesn't have this tarnishing quality --rust will begin to form immediately.

Chris.
