GTR R32 Fuel Tank Cleaning

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

My car have been sitting for years with fuel in the tank and the fuel actually smells pretty bad..

Has anyone cleaned out their fuel tank before? or know of any places that can clean it? I got a quote from a place and they said $399 to get the tank cleaned lol

Any help/recommendation would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

Yep I have cleaned multiple fuel tanks as I have cracked a 32 GTR fuel tank more than once. You're talking about the molasses like shit left from unleaded fuel right ? No, unleaded will not move it like you would think. After much trial and error -

Bleach. Doesn't react with the HDPE the plastic tank is made out of. The bleach bottles are made out of the same material. Get about 8 - 10 litres, leave overnight. Swirl and agitate next day as required. It will bring it back to new.

Fully serious. Test it on a gummy hose clamp or something else from your tank. It will strip the crap off everything. Obviously make sure your tank is pressure washed afterwards and left to dry, as the last thing you want in your fuel system is bleach. Results may vary depending on the crud in your tank, might need more but it's a good start with 8lt and will 100% work. Please post results for confirmation as I've seen no one recommend it before and has proven for me to be the only sure way that works. If you can seal the tank and invert it even better, as getting it off of the bulkhead area is the hardest part. Good round up weed killer substitute afterwards.
