Just looked on the underbody of my 2002 IS300 5-spd and saw rust forming on the gas tank...never noticed it before...never looked. Should i be worried? Should i be painting over this rust or sanding it down? Or should i do nothing?

You can see the back of the tank in one of the photos with rust spots on it as well, would pay to hit that as well. Just dont use anything with sparks ;)

Thank-you all for pointing this out...i would've just assumed this is the fuel tank and not noticed the rust on the actual fuel tank under the rear seats! I sprayed the spare tire well with Rust Destroyer a few days ago. I plan to do the fuel tank as well soon. I will wipe off the flaky loose rust parts first.
