    My neighbor turned me on to cleaning rusty fuel tanks with vinegar. It works great. Only problem was some of the rust came back immediately while I was letting it dry. It works even better on the rust if you use a green 3m pad.

    Do you think it will work on boat seat vinyl?

    This process works really well. I've used it old axe heads, hoes and miscellaneous items for some time. On heavily rusted tools/items it needs to soak in the vinegar for a day or two, a frothy, rusty foam will form on top of the liquid. For this reason it's best to perform the treatment in an area where the scent and potential for staining is not a issue. Sam' Club has 2-1 gal. jugs of vinegar for cheap.
