RE: [DML] Re: fuel tank

Good overview of the job. I would only add that you should make sure the rubber gloves you use are nitrile and not latex. Latex will disintegrate in short order in contact wth gasoline leaving you with gasoline soaked hands and the pieces of latex to get out of the tank.Joe Kuchan

Use Acetone to loosen any sludge or varnishdeposits. Get all of any shiny metal out that you see.
