Cleaning Diesel Tank

Postby pilot158 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 2:16 am

Hello everyone,

I was wondering if someone has experience with cleaning their diesel tanks? We own a 49 Alaskan and I think the tanks have never been cleaned or treated. How would you set things up and/or which products to use? Tnx !

I guess no one has experience with it! I had a local tank service guy do mine. Only took a few hours and they cleaned them very well, made new inspection port gaskets, and polished the fuel before putting it back in. Well worth the $700 it cost me.

Why did you need to clean them? We're you plugging up filters?
