Default Sammio Fuel Tank

Early in my build (ie many years ago) I got hold of a Spitfire fuel tank, cleaned it out, fitted it and filled it with a couple of gallons of petrol. I now find that it has deteriorated somewhat, fuel has gone stale and I am having to recondition my fuel pump, lines and carb.

So I have removed the tank and found that it is has a fair amount of rust inside. Not sure whether to go down the POR15 tank sealer route (which seems to get good reviews) or replace the tank. A brand new Spitfire tank is around 250 but I have noticed lots of new MG tanks for not much more than 100.

Any thoughts and advice would be greatly appreciated. In particular has anyone used the POR15 tank sealer and/or found a tank from another vehicle which readily fits the Sammio?
