Title:

asphalt in right fuel tank, treated 4 times

Text:

2000 9200 International Detroit, million miles. Truck sat over a year and I started running it Oct. 2010. Fuel filters needed change approximately 4-5.000 miles. I got the asphattine (sp) from Cummins and ran 4 jugs within 10,000 miles. I still have a 1-2" strip in bottom of right tank only. ( aluminum tanks 120 gallon each)

It's very hard and with just a 1/8 rod was unable to knock, break loose. Also when using Cummins treatment I used up 2-3 filters on the 240 gallon capacity treatment. One filter replaced in between treatments.

Looking for ideas on how to get tanks cleaned out.

== Update ==

Thanks for answers,,, I forgot to mention that I am a LTL company driver. I try and do tje truck as if my own but do draw the line at certain costs. I've gotten a better look inside tank, did knock loose and recovered the thick parts from bottom of tank. Light coat or "staining" is all that is left. Will try some more Cummins treatment unless someone has better idea.

Thanks again!
