I usually just get any type of Hose I actually have an old fuel pump from the junkyard and I have it connected to a hose and I just put the hose in the tank, and then I power up the fuel pump and it sucks it all out they make special flushing agents you can get from the auto parts store that you can put in there to flush it out honestly we don't normally flush the tank out the pumps its in a swirl pot and so the gunk in the tank doesn't get into where the pump sits anyways.You can use a number of different things, if it's metal and there's a lot of rust they make products that you actually put in the tank and shake the tank around and that actually cleans up all the rust and coats it but since the tank isn't all the way dropped you're not going to really be able to do a whole lot of actual Flushing.If I've answered your question your satisfaction please remember to hit accept next to my name because that's the only way I get compensated if you don't hit accept then the site keeps the entire deposit and I don't get paid.
