I have to agree with that, I thought I had the one in my truck (71 Chev) cleaned out pretty good....Nope! When I did get it to stay running after a bunch of additives and fresh gas, My exhaust smelled like varnish for about a week.
I finally found another tank from a friend and swapped it out, problem solved and lesson learned, that was a PITA.
It is hard enough to clean an old motorcycle tank much less an automobile tank. I used to work on antique cars when I was in college. The worst part in getting a 1920's or 1930's vehicle running was cleaning the gas tank. However, back then you could by solvents over the counter at the local hardware store that are no longer sold to the public.
