Paint for outdoor gas pipe

The gas pipe that's connected to the meter outside is rusting bad and the wife is all over me about painting it.

Will just a Rustoleum product work? I want to prevent it from rusting more in the future and cover it up. Pipe has only been up a year and a half.

Thanks for any help.

Kind of surprised anyone would install black iron outside, we use galvy. Use a metal paint scraper on the pipe and coat it with any outdoor paint, preferably something designed to be applied to rust. I can't remember the stuff we use but it has a red stop sign and the word rust on it. Yellow is a good color for gas.

It really should have been galvy or wrapped with 10mil, however iron pipe is pretty durable and unlikely to rust through in your lifetime.
Hmm, down here when we come across galvanized we eliminate it due to flaking of impurities inside the piping. Not as bad as copper, but it's a code nono.

Rust makes a fine protective layer, don't worry about it.

Galvanized is not permitted in indoor gas piping (in Missouri) because its seam welded instead of extruded and the atmosphere of the gas over time can lead to seam failure.

I bet your gas company would paint it for free.
