    I plan on dumping out the gas in a container, but what do I clean it out with-
    mineral spirits, or ??? a friend said maybe diesel fuel not sure- also the hole on top of the tank is small-i have not opened it up yet but it is only 2-3 inches wide-not sure how clean i can get it-the shop that will seal it says it needs to be semi clean-what do yall think?? also I want to wire wheel and paint the gas tank black -should i wait until i get it back from being sealed

    According to a GM tech sheet that I read on this subject they recommend HOT water to clean the tank and compressed air to dry the inside of the tank.
