Gary M I just took my tank which was about the same size out and flushed it. It is an '84 and had quite a bit of sludge scale etc. It is an aluminum tank. If you can pump out the diesel and get the tank out it might be worth it.

Possible Water In Diesel tank

My Sabre 28, with a 15 gallon tank may have picked up some water in the diesel tank due to water ponding over the fill plate during winter storage. I thought I would suck some of the fuel from the bottom of the tank with a pump that would determine if some heavier than fuel water was lying in the bottom of the tank. Anyone got any advice if this is a sound way to proceed or have another idea?
