Default Re: Muriatic Acid for Gas Tank Cleaning

Here is another question on this subject.
I used a mild solution of muriatic, worked well.
I want to keep inside from flash rusting.
So I guess now I'm ready for the quik prep acid (phosphoric)
I only have a gallon, the tank is about 3 gal.
Should I just dilute w/ denatured or isopropal?
Calcium,rust,lime remover mixed in?
Vinagar mixed in?
Any other options?

Also the DuPont quik prep is I have is probably 20 years old, does acid lose its effectivity over time?
