Gas Tank

I am now on my third car. On the first two, I changed gas tanks completely. However, I heard there is a product that can be used to recondition the existing tank without replacement. Any information here or should I just plan on getting a new tank?
Thanks

You can get your gas tank cleaned, repaired, and plastic laminated at most any good radiator shop.

I don't put much faith in the plastic laminate. Local shop here did it for my 31 pontiac 2 years ago. It lasted a year and a half. The shop doesn't want to know nothin'. I'll part with the iron for a new tank.

second vote with sjptak,...

DIY acid cleaning to remove the rust does not get all the scale out...

sealer can't bond well to converted scale "flakes", sloshing gas will lift it

try some sealer on acid cleaned rusty scrap first....bet your finger nail can peel it
