    Exclamation Cub Cadet 1650 fuel tank cleaning.

    Can anyone help with the best way to clean PLASTIC fuel tank on my 1650 CC. Does NOT leak, just needs a good flush-out because of fuel sitting in it for a couple of years. Strainer on shut off valve was clogged shut.
    Thanks.

    I've used mineral spirits, carb cleaner or even just fresh gasoline. Heck you can even wash it out with hot water and Simple Green.
