If the inside is clean enough now you could use the POR15 tank sealer kit. Or, does it need to be maneuverable? If not could fill with diesel, I've done this. The oil in the diesel helps coat and protect the flash rusting

Its probably not worth the hassle. My Ht was stored for 12yrs (on the coast) I kept the tank around half full. Obviously the fuel will go off after extended periods but its not hard to drain a fuel tank of old fuel which may be an easier & cheaper option. I changed the fuel filter about 3 times over the first 1000ks when I put it back on the road as the little bits of old fuel left in the tank fouled it pretty quick but now its as good as gold. No rust either.
