How to Clean Your Fuel Tank – Delphi
Cleaning the fuel tank is an essential part of a complete fuel repair. Before installing a new fuel pump, it’s critical to properly clean the gas tank. Debris in your gas tank will damage your new fuel pump. And the time it takes to clean out the debris – about an hour – is nothing compared to the time it takes to redo the entire job. So save yourself time, hassle and money — clean the tank before you replace your fuel pump.
*For your convenience, Delphi sells a Fuel Tank Cleaning Kit (FC01). Ask your distributor for more information. Delphi’s low-suds cleaning solution is specifically designed to easily treat and rinse up to a 40 gallon capacity fuel tank.
