I would not rely on the exhaust method to purge a gas tank. The exhaust 
method would not be enough insurance for me to solder or weld on a gas tank 
because there is still risk involved. There's no way to know that the fumes 
are below unsafe levels. I've witnessed what can happen when someone 
disregards "the fumes." Though it wasn't a gas tank, but a 55 gallon drum 
that took half his hand. Personally, I felt more sorry for the cutting torch 
that was broken than for the moron that lost half his hand. I would go as far 
as filling the gas tank with water if it were feasable. Only in desperation 
would I ever rely on the "exhaust method."
