I took my petrol tank to bits to repair the dial on it, the paint had flaked off.
So, sanded down, degreased... and painted!
Sanded down the edges to make it look pretty again (ooooh, etc):
I had removed most of the petrol out of it and left the remainders to evaporate overnight... in the morning i found a nice clear liquid in the corner with yellow droplets on it... WATER!!! and something that looked like chipfat... and it stank very sour.. So i removed the icky stuff with a cloth, and this is what you get.. (enough reason for anyone to wonder why their outboard does not function correctly..):
After absorbing all the liquid with Bounty kitchen roll®! i took a nice picture inside of my tank... :
I almost freaked out! and the mesh filter was sparkling clean...
So, got out the fairy liquid, hot water and squished a whole lot in, and ran round in circles with the tank.... after i thought it was clean, i rinsed it for 5 minutes to get all the bubbles and junk out, i then emptied it, stuck another bit of tissue paper in, and put the hot air cannon on it for 20 min, and its as good as new!!!
i can even read how full my tank is, and it's only ½ full
