Ofcourse it's mainly rust then. That's why I said to be sure the metal
is still thick enough.
I'm not too fond of the acid method. If the first one doesn't work then
I'll try acid. But sofar I've only had one tank which wasn't clean after
the first method and it took 3 rounds of profesional cleaning to get it
the way it is now, and it's still not clean.

Mwoah, depends on the type of carburetor. Old bings can take a lot befor
they clog. New ones only need the idea of a possible rustparticle and
clog already. ;)
You're right about the filter, every moped should have one.
