You could drop the tank, do a few rounds of diluted muriactic acid to clean you the varnish and crud, and follow that us with some phosphoric acid to help neutralize the existing rust. Flush it with water, and then a round of acetone to neutralize the acids. Then just put an compressed air line or shop vac on it for a couple of hours to dry out any remaining moisture.

That is basically what I did to mine and it only cost about $60, and a days worth of labor. If the scale and rust is really bad you could put a heavy chain in the tank and give it a good shake and tumble before the acid treatments. Check my blog for more info on this.

Just make sure to use some long rubber gloves.
