The surface corrosion is not something to worry about. Aluminum oxide is good as it prevents corrosion. What causes aluminum to fail is moisture and lack of oxygen, as in sitting in a continuously...

Denise, I was concerned that we had high-jacked your original posting, but I see that the title is Tank Remove/Replace, which is generic enough. Hope you don't mind.
