Re: DIY Fuel Polishing?

I agree with the thought that polishing 12 gallons of fuel is a waste of time and energy. Either dispose of it , donate it and then start with entirely fresh good fuel.

However without a cleanup of the interior of the tank, you are really affecting nothing but getting rid of the remaining fuel which MIGHT have card and contaminants. Adding new fuel to an I cleaned tank will still give you issues eventually. If this clean tank is truly important to your peace of mind ( it would be for me) do it right not half way .
