A bit of thread slip, but as always thanks for your imput.
If I may reitorate the basic question...
I have two fuel tanks
. the first has now been completely cleaned and the second cannot be easily accessed until on the hard
. I have approximately 20 gallons of diesel in the second tank...(half full) which is now completely isolated/disconnected from the system... I don't need it.
My original question was poorly put. I am not seeking an additive, which will allow me to reconnect to the fuel system and use the fuel therein. Instead I was wondering if I added something...even ATF... to the existing fuel in the tank and then left it there for a few months of sailing motion, whether this concoction (whatever it is) could perhaps help to breakdown/clean the gunge in the tank, for it to be pumped out and discarded. In short I know the diesel fuel is now trash( it was bought in Venezuela
at $0.20USD per gallon) so no problem. NOTE: The cost of new diesel for front tank in Curacao
was $80USD. This would fill both my tanks
and my weekly petrol needs for my Impala for over a year in Venezuela
I was about to have it all pumped out when I wondered whether it would not be better to leave the fuel there and keep whatever gunge/residue is there; moist. I decided to do this, so the next logical possibility is that it's there doing nothing much and I wondered whether adding... ATF, Kerosene, petrol, paraffin, cheap
or some brand fluid... to the fuel, would make a mix which when agitated underway for a few months will when eventually pumped out would take most of the crap with it.
Your suggestions as to possibly enhancing the cleaing process...before discarding...as always would be appreciated.
