Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dan It works....slowly
This is a safer alternative to Naval Jelly and similar phosphoric acid-based rust dissolving products. I believe its active ingredient may be ammonium citrate, as I had made something similar when I had access to laboratory chemicals in school. It works rather more slowly that acid-based formulations, so a larger rusty item should be bagged or well covered to minimize evaporation. I thought the price of about $25 for a gallon of the working solution was too high considering that is just a solution of a simple chemical compound in water. In that respect I think it's not very competitive with phosphoric acid products that give a similar end result more quickly and cheaply, and provide a residual phosphate coating with modest rust preventive properties, in addition to etching the surface for improved paint adhesion.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Doug23 Works great on light rust removal.
Just drop the rusty parts in the solution for awhile and the rust dissolves away !

i would buy this again in a heartbeat. I have a rototiller that the gas tank had rust in it so bad I thought it was ruined until someone told me about this product. I followed the instructions and it worked so well it came out like new.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tristan Removes rust but its about a one time use
Works great on first use. Loses it potential with second use. Third time the solution was oily and did not work.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whm88 Metal Rescue - Excellent Results on Motorcycle tank
Excellent results obtained on my motorcycle fuel tank. Be sure to rinse with clean product after rust removal and allow to dry to prevent flash rust. Final rinse with about a quart of fuel before installation. Mount tank and fill.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYDee Great Product!
This product is fantastic.. Very easy to use and no odor. Place item in a plastic container, pour enough Metal Rescue to cover the item, put a lid on it and wait. First I cleaned a bunch of old rusted drill bits for about 12 hours. They came out great! I placed part of a pipe wrench in the leftover solution and let it soak for 2 days. Rinsed and wiped with a towel. Amazing!

This product is THE BOMB for cleaning out a rusty motorcycle gas tank. Just tape the opening with duct tape and leave for a half-day or longer (depending on the amount of rust) then invert for same amount of time! No damage to the paint if it happens to leak and no neutralizing after this process. But wait! You can pour this down the sewer when you're finished! TERRIFIC AND EASY
