So I cleaned out my fuel tank
today and had a couple of questions for some of your diesel
folks. My tank is iron, and I was worried about rust and gunk. Turns out minus some brown slime and water
in the bottom, everything was looking pretty good.
The half finished project
(opened, cleaned, not put back together yet):
What I'd really like to find out is what's the lining of the interior
of my fuel tank
? It's white, seems quite hard, and I didn't see a single
chip of any type in there. No rust, nada. And the slime game
off super easy with a paper towel:
A shot of the interior
with one of the baffles:
Cool picture... notice the water
on the bottom. The water in the tank was this nasty white/grey sludge stuff. Wasn't much of it, but there was way more of that than anything else I could see that would foul the tank.
