I like playing with these little superpower magnets available today .I have been pleased to find they can grab any uncorroded iron within rust  flakes .To do this with conventional magnets needs a much bigger magnet.This has stopped particles which will pass a fuel filter.So if one has a tank starting to go perhaps putting two on the base might arrest the passage of irony crud.

A good idea, but perhaps only a temporary solution?

Current bikes......1958 D5, a 77 Suzuki GT250 and a 77 Honda CB125S. I have a 74 Kawasaki S3 400 and a B175 waiting for restoration. A 1980 Honda CB400N waiting for MOT.  Everyday ride is a 2011 Harley Davidson Sportster.

On the Landy which huge tank is too awkward to take off except in extremsis  they have brought the flakes to the drain plug nicely.What i am hoping is they will stop the really fine stuff rereleasing into the fuel.
