    Cool Suzuki GS150 Euro-ll 2013

    Default Fuel Tank rust eaten in 2 years

    Since last few months, i was noticing fuel going dirty in the tank and suspected there was rust inside.
    So finally decided to remove the tank and clean it out. But once i started the process, i came to know that situation was much worst. Tank was like half eaten from inside with rust with lots of rusted metal chips in it. I removed as much debris i could but i could clearly see that that tank was done for, and all the rust moving to the engine with fuel could lead to bigger issues in future. Time for a new tank?

    Well after seeing so much rust, i moved to carburettor and as expected it was full of rust. Did as much cleaning as i could do and put it back On, but with the same fuel tank it's only the matter of time it becomes full of rust again.

    Wondering how much new tank will cost and what measures can be taken to prevent from future rusting....

    @12gauge check this out, remember we were talking about inner enamel in bike fuel tanks and you said that you thought local bikes are enameled as well... well here is the answer how much they are enameled ... so you have a green signal to cut it now without worry about enamel for the project.

    Many might will disagree but its not only the quality issue of tank material but also the pathetic fuel quality we are getting now adays, petrol is not what its use to be, some shitty chemical mixed with low grade petrol pumped in our rides in the name of quality fuel.
    its not the first time i am seeing this type of rust in last 20 days time.
    Help others so that u can be Helped

    Pehli baaat.... Whenever u refuel ur bike tank... Ask filler not to hit the inner part of tank with filling metal pipe...

    Dosri baat.... Put some plastic cover on tank specially on fuel cap... Water creeps inside from.fuel cap..

    Teesri baat..... Keep a check on fuel filter.....

    Rust chances will b decreased by these three checkpoints

    no brother my gs is going strong ALLHAMDULLILAH but my brothers 13 gs faced the same issue of the tank although when i opened the carb it was clean from inside. mileage is 6k only. i think its because the bike was parked for 6 months with fuel in the tank. but i asked my mechanic and he said that the tank can be repaired

    Well mine case is much severe as shown by the carb condition.
    Plus i removed almost a handful of rusted metal pieces from inside the tank and the petrol inside was dark brown.

    I was having little trouble with smooth idling too lately, and problem is gone after carb service.

    use inline fuel filter the metallic one .. cost 40rs.. not the transparent ones.. untill you are sure your tank is ok ..

    these particals cannot do damage to engine .. they have to pass through hair thin jets and holes to reach engine..

    dont take any tension of engine..

    i am almost sure it was becuase of long term storage with some fuel inside.
    Best to keep tank full and add stabilizer to it before you put the bike in storage. Also make sure you add stabilizer on your last ride home to ensure stabilizer gets into carburettor and stuff too.
    Easier, safer and more reliable.

    Worst you can do is to leave the tank half full with gas.

    And fully draining the tank+carburettor is also much hassle.

    So you are suggesting to add another fuel filter? as GS already has one.

    Well i've never faced the rust issue, my carburetor has been cleaned recently and found no proof of rust particles in petrol. Shukar Allah... It might be because i've never stored my bike with gas in the tank.
