Plastic gas tank cleaning

Recommended Posts

richp
I have a gas tank that needs a good flush. The old gas sat in it for years and has a sticky layer of crud on it. I ran hot soapy water through it for a few hours which helped, but it still needs more cleaning. Any ideas?

Acetone will cut the varnish and after you drain the tank, will also evaporate readily. Did this trick on my 3212H after it had sat fo four years. Even though it had Sta-bil in the tank, it had sat for too long.Thankfully, the carb had been run dry before it was shut down for storage.
