Whew, I don't know about that one, sounds risky.

The problem is, that IF it IS rust, you're gonna blow bigger hole in it once you start to weld. (rusted from inside out)

Maybe a bigger problem *may* be an exploding tank.

Sometimes you can find gently used tanks locally from compressors that have went bad. That's what I'd try.
