    Sorry, Peter but I can't resist. Remove the gas cap and using a flashlight, shine it inside the tank and check for rust. Seriously, though, if you think that you need to coat the interior of the tank, there are several products out there but to me, are a pain to use. Performance Radiator (don't read this Chuck) in Tacoma is the company that I used to check my tank for leaks and then coat the inside. Pretty reasonable prices, just be sure to tell them when you want it back. I got mine back in about a week.

      jerry,
      thanks, yes a flashlight will work!!!!
      When I bring it to the performance Radiator , what they do about the
      the Floating devise in the Tank. They have to be very carful with those,
      I might have a spare one

        Take the sending unit ("floating device") out before taking to Performance Rad.
        The more I know about Minis, the more I know I don't know about Minis.

            The wires connect to a round plug in the side of the tank, right? There is a locking ring holding the sender in. Chase that ring out by using a hammer and a pin punch or a dull screwdriver. Gegen Uhrzeigersinn.
