    Homemade zinc anode?

    With all the zinc wheel weights filling our buckets, would it be possible to make an anode for use on a car, tractor, or other equipment prone to rust?

    Only if it is in the water. Zinc is more active than iron, and will react as a sacrificial anode when in a conducting solution.
