Thanks for all the responses on my gas tank cleaning dilema.  After trying
myself with laquer thinner, gasoline, and water (not together of course),
and sitting it upside down in the hot Louisiana sun for an afternoon, I
finally took it to a local radiator shop that said they would clean it out
for $50 or $60.  He said there would be a 50:50 chance that after it was
cleaned it would leak - pinholes from internal rust, so I'm buying a new
one.  The ol risk / reward ratio just wasn't low enough.  Now to figure out
how to dispose of the old tank !

Thanks for the support !!
