If you're sick of paying someone to clean out your boat's gas tank, then you should learn how to clean boat gas tanks. If that sounds like you, then you have found the perfect guide. This guide on how to clean out your boat's gas tank will save you money and keep your boat's motor running strong.
Before you get started, you are going to need these materials:
- fuel system treatment and stabilizer
The first step to cleaning out your boat's gas tank is to drain the gas left in the gas tank. After you have done that, turn off the fuel pump. You do not want any of the chemicals to end up inside your fuel lines.
Now, fill the tank with two gallons of fresh gas. After you do that, pour mercury and the fuel system treatment and stabilizer into the gas tank.
The third and final step to cleaning out your boat's gas tank is to let the fuel, mercury and fuel system treatment and stabilizer sit overnight. After you have done that, drain the gas tank again. Now, get a water hose and flush out the gas tank. Let the gas tank dry and get a flashlight to look inside the gas tank to see if the tank is clean. If the tank is not clean, repeat the process. After the tank is clean, refill the tank and turn the fuel pump back on.
Congratulations! You have finished cleaning out your boat's gas tank.
