I agree that having the tank boiled out is a good idea and the lining  
may not be a bad idea. However, I had some difficulty with the lining  
flaking off and plugging the filter in my car. I spliced the filter  
into the line just after the fuel pump on the line to the  
carburetors. It has worked well for 10 years and several long trips  
(well, long to everyone except, maybe, Barney).
