A Bit of Diesel . . .

Every so often I get a tiny diesel slick in my FW tank. Is there a simple way to get rid of it with some sort of absorbant? I'm working on the source, but in the meantime it would be nice to get rid of what's already in there.

Re: A bit of diesel.....

Does "FW" mean "fresh water"? There are absorbant pads for getting oil and diesel out of the bilges, that might be possible, but if it really is the drinking water tank you are talking about then any diesel will make it unpalatable.
