    The rod was a piece of steel rebar that I found. Hooked the positive to that, hooked the negative to the gas tank, and put the rod in the tank (I suspended it in the tank so it wouldn't touch the sides and short out). Look up electrolysis on youtube, very simple, cheap, and extremely effective.

    Thanks, kind thought that's how you did it. Does all the rust cling to the rod?

    How much does that cost? A new tank is only like $130

    I called and they said $65. I was just checking and comparing.

    Yup. The rust travels from your part, through the water, and clings to the metal rod. It's the craziest damn thing
