Hi all, I have a general steel tank question and I thought this is the best place to tap into a wealth of knowledge. I have a bike I just bought and the tank was creamed inside years ago. It's starting to flake. Is there a way to get the cream coating off? Thanks dale

I did a tank this past year with an initial cleaning using a pressure washer. After the loose stuff came off I let it sit with cleaning vinegar inside for a couple of days then pressure washed it again. I had to repeat this process a couple of times. It worked for me.
Dale, If I remember correctly, the Kreem tank liner is an MEK based product and so I’d think using MEK would dissolve what remains after pressure washing. Just be careful not to get the MEK on the tank’s painted surfaces as it will sure remove the paint too. Good luck. Dave McC
