[DML] tar like coating gas tank

I've been lurking for a while but this is my first
post.  My name is Steven Clark and I'm from So.
Indiana, near Louisville KY.  My father purchased a
Delorean this past spring that has sat for a while,
and we've been working on getting it going, freshening
up various things.  
We tore into the gas tank last night to install our
new special-t fuel pump.  While cleaning up the inside
of the tank there is a tar like coating across the
bottom, it needs to come out and we almost have all of
it.  What I'm wondering is what is this stuff?  Is it
something that leached out of years of old gas?  A
factory installed coating from the factory?  Did some
rubber piece liquefy?  Did someone try to repair a
leak at some time?  My fear is that it's some sort of
leak fix and now we'll have a leaky gas tank.
thank you.
