If your fuel is diesel you probably need to start with a bottle of diesel fuel tank cleaner. Also if your tank is gunked up your fuel lines and carburetor bowl may be gunked up also. You may need to replace the fuel lines and clean the carburetor bowl also. If the problem is rust you might start with a couple of pounds of screws, nuts and bolts shaking it a lot to break up the crust. Then flush with muriatic acid. The problem with muriatic acid is it quickly rusts back after treatment so use vinegar or oxalic acid to neutralize it. Then rinse the chemicals out with water and dry. Once a tank has started to rust it will continue so a fuel tank liner should be used to coat it. I use Red-Kote.
