RustAid works very well just spray it on no scrubbing or rinsing. You need to be careful if you get it on some types of brick.

A solution of Oxalic acid will remove rust stains.
Power wash the vinyl first with usual house wash (low pressure), rinse/let dry a few minutes and spray the oxalic acid on the stains. They should go out in minutes.

Yes it us but not everyone has a direct resource to Oxalic acid.
In fact sometimes I am to far away to my source and need it now.
Rustaid is at almost any hardware store.
