Question 60 gal cleanout

I've got the rds 60 tank/toolbox and since I got it used I'd like to clean it out before use. I was gonna pressure wash the inside first then put a few gals of d2 init and drain it. Any other suggestions? Thanks

Is it dirty inside?

That would work, but you'd still wanna leave it open and put it out in the sun for a few days - maybe before the D2 rinse.

It appears to have a small amount of crud from the PO . It looks like fallout from oil that wasn't cleaned that well.

If it looks like it'll 'rinse out', skip the water and just use some diesel. You can always re-use the diesel for additional rinsing after pouring it thru a t-shirt or pillowcase or something. For that matter, you can add it to the VO tank when yer done with it.

Just slurp the dirty stuff out of the tank with one of those suction/siphon thingys after sloshing it around in the tank. You could even push it thru a cheap ($3) plastic fuel filter like you'd see on a lawn mower or something...
