MSDS says: "Contains no ingredient listed as a carcinogen"
This stuff is too easy to find out to be guessing.

Actually you should be more worried about those little fabric softener sheets that contain benzene.
"Non urinat in ventum"
I am sure there are others. Bottom line: try to minimize breathing any chemical soup for longer than absolutely necessary.
For cleaning out rust, I just poured a couple of gallons of EVAPORUST into a CB160 tank and was surprised at how well it removed rust and flakes from the inside. That particular tank didn't have much flaking or heavy rust so I have no idea how ell it would work on a tank that's just a series of holes, loosely connected with a thin steel skin. Worked better than I had expected. YMMV.
So I was recommended to use stuff by Frost and it worked, not great but a lot better. Wondering whether a liner is best or not, as I've seen they can create issues themselves.
One container of wood acid from the hardware store was enough for probably 20 treatments.
no coating, and probably 3 years later it looks good in there last time I filled gas.
one thing to remember is to run an inline filter for a while after cleaning the tank. those rust flakes will continue to come off for months.
