GAS TANK CLEANING D.I.Y. [INFO.]

I thought this to be an interesting concept and an easier method of cleaning a Fuel Tank than all the laborious methods available to clean the tank.

If you are possibly half as lazy as I am. Then this process is for you too!

I had to look this up as it seemed to good to be true. I then did a search and found others have done the same technique. I usually double check things found on the internet especially after I got burned with placing my cellphone in the microwave to get better reception. :mrgreen:

It still seems to be a bit of work tho and takes some time if you have a very rusty situation. My question is it advised or worthwhile to try and seal it afterwards? Has anyone experienced sealing their tanks?

My tanks may only be slightly rusty and I was wondering if I should even bother. Sometimes leaving well enough alone may be best.
