Tank is held on to engine with bolts in the tank mounting ears. Turn off gas, remove the fuel line, remove the mounting bolts, being it i son a generator, other sheet metal may have to come off to get tank out. See parts list below.

Curtis, Thank you for responding to my question; however I believe there may be some miscommunication. The engine is located on a Poulan Pro Rotor Tiller, not a generator. The reason I want to remove the gas tank is I can flush the tank and fuel line due to possibly having rust and sediment it them.
Technician: Curtis B., Technician replied 11 months ago

OK, the engine is also used on a generator, and with all the Irma hurricane generators coming on with problems. I was assuming! But fuel tank mounts the same.
