rusty fuel tank

I recently purchased a 1991 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si 5 spd. When I bought it the seller told me that he had a problem with the fuel tank being rusty or having some sediment inside of it. The other day my wife and I were riding around and the car lost power and began to buck like it was going to stall out. I pulled over and checked the fuel filter and sure enough it was full of rusty colored gasoline. I've heard that you can flush the tank and lines out. Is that a good idea or would that just push the rust further into the fuel system. If this is a possibility could someone please tell me where I can get a kit to flush it out or where I can go to look for a new fuel tank?

Re: rusty fuel tank

i had the exact same problem

i changed my fuel filter, got my injectors flushed and filled the tank to the brim with higher grade petrol and put fuel injection system cleaner in it and it made a massive improvement, although it still does it it has got increasingly better with time.
