Cleaning a fuel tank

Oh wise mariners of the Sailnet forums,
I had lots of gook in my fuel tank. I removed the diesel, added a little more, removed it again, added some more with fuel stabilizer, removed it. The gook comes out, but there is always some left. I am guessing it's stuck to the bottom. I need to find a way to flush it out. Would calling a fuel polishing service do the trick? I don't care about the diesel in the tank, I only have a couple gallons there, but if the grime is stuck to the tank, how do I clean it?

Thanks,
Kim
