Default xr400 fuel tank cleaner

Anybody have a way to get a dirty looking white fuel tank to look good again?

The brown nastiness is from fuel vapors bleeding through the plastic. I've heard you can wet sand the plastic and it cleans up a little, I have a oversize natural tank I might give that a try on.

the trick i used on white plastics was brillo pads to scour the surface and get the color back then buff it smooth to get rid of the scratches

I heard you can use tooth paste one yellowed head light lenses. I don't know if it would work for your situation.
