i dont know about the exhaust part ive seen to many sparks from rust etc. come out of a exhaust before and if by chance it should backfire you would would have one he!! of a mess... ive always used water to rince them out if you have the tank off its the easyst way to do it when you are done rincing and fixing it then take 1 gallon gas and add 2 bottles of heat(gas line antifreze) to it plug the bottom of the tank dump it in and cover top and shake good and drain it should then be clean of all water when you put it back on put 1 bottle of heat in with the gas just to make shure all water is gone ive done this several times and works great.....sHan

I have heard that mechanics used to repair gas tanks by running a hose from the exhaust into the tank. The carbon monoxide in the fumes prevented having sufficient oxygen to cause an explosion. They run the exhaust into the tank the entire time they were welding or soldering. It always sounded scary to me
