Stored, semi-empty tanks, especially in humid area's WILL rust up..(the "open" area where fuel doesn't protect the steel).
That is probably the biggest thing that can cause additional issues, (clogged fuel pump, injectors, etc).
Tanks can be cleaned and coated, short of having rusted thru..
IMO, I'd trailer that bike home and put some oil down the cylinders / and dump ALL the fuel out of the tank. For that short ride home, you can cause many problems that as of now could be preventable...
