OLD!! Gas

Postby hbgod » 06:53 pm Jul 28 2012

so i got all the parts out of storage for my 86 kdx 200....... the tank had old mix gas in it. 15year old mix. so the inside of the tank is all gunked up and the petcock is pretty much garbage. im not sure how to clean the inside of the tank. its a mix of gas, oil, and rust just coated in the inside of the tank.
any suggestions?

I've seen videos of people filling their tanks with nuts, bolts, rocks, anything really and packing it tight into their clothes dryer with the heat off and towels all around it so it doesn't bang around.
A cement mixer would be better if you have one.

They sell Acetone in plastic bottles. ( nail polish remover) Try Simple Green it not flamable and cuts grease really good. Also myabe you could rent a Paint shaker for a few hours?
