    put a gallon or two of gas in it, slosh it around real good, drain what comes out into your nearest gas-holding receptacle, and run it in your mower-weedeater-blower-edger-minivan.

    i'm cleaning my tank right now too!!!

    it occurred to me you might not wanna drop the tank. run it dry and i suppose you could use compressed air to blow any fuel in the line back to the tank, then fill up with gas. a little diesel in gas won't hurt a thing. it's the other way around that would have me worried.....
