Rust on Chrome:

Spray on some PB Blaster or other penetrating oil

Use fine steel wool to get rid of the rust

Wash off the oil, dry

Get some Ospho from the hardware store. Wet a paper towel with it and go over the item. Let it sit overnight. This will seal the bare spots and prevent rust from returning.

Even if you intend to paint the rust areas on the muffler, the Ospho is a must before priming and painting.

Filling up at the gas station:

Even with the reserve amount in the tank, a Batavus should be able to take a gallon of gas. Carry a measured amount of oil for one gallon (actually 2.6 ounces, which is almost exactly 1/3 cup). It should fit under the seat, no problem. Put in the oil first, then exactly one gallon of gas. The gas flowing in mixes it just fine. You can top off from your premix can when you get home.

The "gas first" is OK if you don't know how much gas it's going to take, so you have to do the math for the right ratio afterwards. Putting in exactly one gallon eliminates that problem.
