Cleaning The Inside Of A Plastic Fuel Tank


Recommended Posts

I have been given a 20L plastic fuel tank and would like to wash out the inside, just in case it has any crap in it. Is this as simple as washing it out with the hose and then leaving the lid off until all the water evaporates or is this a no no and is there some other way?

I have succesfully used Metho to rinse a tank.

Having said that with a small tank I dont see why using water to flush it and allowing to dry completely could be unsafe.

I have just recently seen about a tablespoon of water in my 21L plastic tank. (last time I took the near empty tank out to refill it) Ill get around to flushing it out before I go offshore again.
