Cleaning out 2 stroke fuel bag

Hi

Ive a milpro type fuel bag that ive been using premix for a 2 stroke outboard.
I have recently bought an autolube and want to use the bag to carry extra fuel as an addition to my 25l tank.
The bag is empty but there must be a residue of 2 stroke oli in there so how do i clean it out? or will the amout be negligible?
New outboard is a Tohatsu 50hp tldi if that makes any difference.
Thanks

Steve.

It won't affect anything negatively.

a four stroke will run on a pure two stroke mix, just a little smokey.

His engine is a direct injection 2/ not that it is going to mind residual oil in the mix either.

Oh aye, so it is, I missed that bit.

Even less of a concern then.

Cleaning out 2 stroke fuel bag

They've actually tested that, 2-stroke oil is one of the best additives for old diesel engines to protect the high pressure injection pumps.

On gasoline vehicles, it will lubricate the valve guides to prevent premature wear.

On my Mazda RX7 (wankel rotary), I would premix 100:1 to lubricate the apex seals.

You gotta watch out though, if you mix it too rich, it can clog your catalytic converter, your oxygen sensor(s), and possibly foul your spark plugs.
