Best Epoxy Paint for Black Iron Fuel Tanks

Hi all. I have removed my fuel tanks for refurbishing. They are black iron (mild steel) and in excellent condition for 35 years old. I am having two new 3/8" FNPT threads welded onto each for a fuel polishing system I am building and having them sandblasted. I have settled on epoxy paint over powdercoating but there are so many choices. Anything I should know before committing to one brand's primer and topcoat? Paint will not be submerged and coating white metal. Any thoughts are much appreciated.
