After the rust is gone

After removing rust from inside a fount is anyone treating the inside to inhibit future rust or just keep it full of fuel?

This is on the 118a lamp fount I am working on. All the sludge is gone and I am now getting rust out of it. So I would like to protect the steel bottom.
