Decontaminating water tanks

Thing is, we''re talking a diesel film in the tanks. There''s nothing in the lines YET, so I''ll pump straight from the tank until I get good water. Hydrogen peroxide, huh? Sounds good. I''m thinking maybe several flushes, some bicarbonate of soda, pressure wash, etc. I haven''t been near the boat in 2 years and am going to visit it next week. Sounds grim. I think I''ll do the Starbrite thing as well. Hard to kill diesel smell. Thanks. KW
