Hi my name is***** will be glad to help. Sorry you are going through this frustrating issue. Usually what happens is the fuel truck removes the strainer or poke a hole in it so they can fill the tank quicker and the end result is what you are dealing with. Let me pull some info for you to help.

The best an most thorough way to clean this out is to remove the tank and clean it out with the plugs , and filler removed. You can have it pressure washed and flushed out. Click below for the parts breakdown showing the mounting brackets. anything less you may still be leaving contamination in the tank and dealing with a longer process of trying to get the contamination out.
