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

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.

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.
