Matthew Boyington: this is some stupid crap use a vacuum cleaner that will blow up with gas fumes in it rock and fumes u will have a bomb wtf

aspirinemaga: before cleaning a fuel tank, be sure to be clean yourself first

jackiesgeorge: how stupid..

Trevorz Zealley: Yeah I tried the vacuum cleaner once on an empty tank . The vac went fooof & never worked again , didn`t tell my wife what I`d done with her expensive cleaner . So she just blamed the appliance instead of me . I liked your rock & roll method better, but would sling it on a rope so it balanced , then wobble the crap out of it , then wash like you said , should work ? Thanks for another great vid .

Jay Alvarez: I'm scared to use rocks lol, I would use nuts n small bolts

Walkertongdee: Marbles and a magnet

derrickgates42: only thing I wouldn't recommend in this video is a vacuum cleaner. very bad idea considering there is sparks coming from the brushes on the vacuum motor and you're sucking gas fumes straight through those sparks.

Hassan Albrkati: لماذا لايكون اسفل التانكي صمام تتخلص من الاوساخ دون فك التانكي

Ralphs Rods: that's it,  just pour the fuel out on the ground, wow ! We use an old piece of chain or nuts and bolts, and Apple Cider vinegar and Dawn dish soap. easy on the soap. rinse with vinegar and water. Has worked for years, Never, ever pour fuel out on the ground

Todd Long: Good Work!
I haven't needed to clean a Car or truck tank, but Motor cycle tanks I Muratic acid them, then rinse out. Then a pound 1 1/2" sheet rock screws (they are the threads are sharp and the tips get into the cracks) get tossed in the tank. Then I wrap the tank in moving blankets, and plase in the dryer, packing the gaps in the dryer drum with old pillows, till the tank is secure. Then let it run like you did, Rock tumbler style

Tim Diebert: True there is already a bunch of rust & junk inside already but I DEFINATELY recommend using a metal chain!! This way you don't accidentally miss gettin all the rocks out. With a chain you just reach in, grab it out & that's it. Otherwise this video is very helpful.

Tip: strain the gas through old shirts. Then you can reuse that gas over & over to RINSE the tank. NEVER reuse that old gas to run the motor. Only to rinse the loose crud out. 

SuperKONR: Good tip. I've done this on a bunch of tanks, works great.

lawnboy81SMS: That literally looks like the same exact tank that my 1987 Chevy Scottsdale 30 1 ton has lol

CalebEatsaBullet: I'm sure its fine if you don't have any money and you're trying to get some piece of crap to run for a little while... unacceptable for any type of quality repair. Now instead of just rust and crystalized sediment.. you have to worry about remaining gravel too.  Best stick to field cars sir

Life's Adventures: I think I will pass on this advise.  I would never put dirt and rocks and crap in my tank.

Beepis: I use gas to wash oil off my hands all the time. Do i do it inside? No i do it over my yard. No problem

24tysont: Do not do this, I repeat, do not do this. The filler neck goes farther in to the tank. Its not flush. The rocks are not going to just fall out and your going to be digging that crap out for a while. Lol 

Jeff Letendre: Really - you just dump gas out onto the ground? Only a jackass would do that. Next to your well I presume. So much for 'land stewardship'. Do not follow this clown's advice!

craig bridge: what have you been smoking? take it to a rad shop and have them dip it. What a clown.
