It is about 20% rust areas, in 4-5 different areas. that caked on dirt holds water and leads to rust.I'm not sure why it was so oily, maybe it was the pin holes leaking oil for a long time?I got the other one out and it is maybe 40% rusty, mostly the side by the fender and the front. not much caked on dirt and the rust looks lighter than the other. also not very oily. the brackets did have large gravel/dirt firmly attached. This is an area of the car that a good washing with pressure hose would be good to do regularly.At this point the second tank is out, but with all three hoses attached. I could only get them loose from the oil pan, the ones on the sump are quite rusted on. I even tried double breaker bars and no luck so far.
