That should do it, I have read of folk using gravel and strapping the tank to a wheel of a tractor and letting it spin for a while. The wheel jacked up off the ground of course. No matter what you use as long as it gets the rust and junk out.:fing32:

I put stabilizer and MMO in my all my fuel cans summer or winter so that when I fill any power equipment or tractor I do not have to try to remember if I treated them or not. Don't know if it helps that much but peace of mind that I am doing what I can does a lot.
