What's kind of gas is best for my TO-30? I've been having trouble keeping the tank clean ever since it was rusted up pretty bad. I cleaned it out with Muriatic Acid, and it looked like new, but it gets flakey real quick, so I heard that a Radiator Shop can clean them out so I'm going to try that and see if they can do it.

So then I was going to just run 87 octane with stabilizer in it. Will that be enough to counter the ethonel that's in the gas now a days, or is there any other additives that are good to use?

I'll second the preparation part. I fought for 5 or 6 years with a POR 15 job done by the previous owner that was flaking off....frustrating to say the least!

I would coat the tank with POR 15 or red coat, prep is super important.

I have been running Non Ethanol 92 grade in my To30 what a difference in power and starting .
Its a bit pricey in cost but well worth it

FYI. Purchased a 3400 gas with very rusty tank. Had it cleaned and lined at radiator shop. Should never rust again, but it cost $274.00. Tried to purchase new tank but none available.

It's not the gas, the tank is still flaking rust.

Just a matter of time before it starts leaking.

I would replace it asap, be done with the frustration.
