    I use gravel or glass broken up finely,remove petcock and filler cap,seal up openings and shake,shake shake !

    The varnish petrol residue is HORRIBLE to remove. I tried the petrol and gravel method - limited success.
    I then tried warm water and Oxy cleaner for two fills and lo and behold a reasonably clean tank. I got the cleaner from the local Tesco own brand - Worked a treat. Good luck!
