I agree, the repair kit (4 steps, cleaning and sealing) from Eastwood costs $86. Get a new tank and sending unit.

Unless it was left open and empty for years in a humid place.

I've red many times how rusty US tanks are...

Both my 71 and 73 tanks are as new inside. Shiny and all. @vinnie removed his 73's a month ago and was also pristine inside.

There must be a massive diff in fuels/additive chemistry used compared to Europe.
