I am going to be acquiring a 200-gallon steel fuel storage tank very soon. It has been used to store off-road diesel for farm equipment. This is exactly what I would use it for. . .to store diesel for my tractor and mower. The previous owner has taken excellent care of it and it looks new. He emptied it and scrubed out the inside with a rag on a long stick and a flashlight. It has a hand pump with it. I will plan to replace the filter element prior to use. Question is, do I need to do anything else to clean it out before refilling? Is there a single "RIGHT" way to clean out a fuel storage tank? Thanks!
