I have a w6 I picked up and was working on getting it going. I cleaned the fuel lines but then noticed how much tar had accumulated in the tank. I've spent hours trying to clean it bit still have a bunch behind the baffle. any suggestions on cleaning the rest out.

if you want a good job and want it done properly take it to a rad shop and have it boiled out in the hot tank. be like new. other than that its experimenting and it time consuming.

If it is just tar, fresh gasoline will dissolve it. E85 will be the quickest.

are you sure its tar?, i have never seen old gas turn into tar. i had a tank on a w6 that had gas sit in it for a lot of years and it was just a stinky glue varnesh mess. new gas did absolutly nothing to it. i had to boil it out. kinda wondering about this tar your talking about.

nothing else I can call it. black and slimy just like tar. the tank was 1/3 full of it. it had only sat 6 or 7 years from last time used. what a mess. glad the fuel line was disconnected.
