How do you clean dried gasoline deposits from an aluminum fuel tank?
Possible cure for fuel injector problems My service engine light came on and off several times, so I took my 1998 olds regency to the shop… this morning to have it checked and inspected. I was told that two of the fuel injectors needed cleaning or replaced, but the cleaning had to be done by machine and not by using additives in the fuel tank. The cleaning will cost me $189. They will not guarantee that this will cure my problem but if it don't then I am looking at replacing those injectors for a price of over $500. I guess I'll see what happens....just wanted to share this with another olds owner. Hmmm... If the cleaning or replacement is really as costly as is indicated here, I think I'd look for a new mechanic. I had two injectors replaced in my '96 recently. They cost $76 each at Auto Zone and my mechanic replaced them (one at a time, a week's time apart) for a case of beer each time. It's really a job you can do yourself, but I think you'll need some Torx sockets to remove the metal rail that holds the injectors in place. You also need to take a good look at how the accelerator cable (and cruise control cable if you have cruise) connects. My mechanic put some Vasaline type of lube on the injectors before she seated them. Sounds like you could use a Haynes or Chilton manual. FriPilot

When filling the fuel tank of a gasoline-powered boat, the safetyprecautions are: . Keep engines, motors, and fans turned off, . extinguish all open flame, . ground the bo…at to the fueling dock where required. . Discharge the static electricity. Before opening the cap, youshould touch the skin of the vehicle and then touch something metaland unpainted attached to ground. If the fueling facility has astatic line, use it. . Keep your face away when opening the cap to avoid inhaling anyof the fumes. . Stay present while the fuel is pumping, do not use the fuelnozzle trigger lock. . When fueling is finished replace the cap and the nozzle. . Before re-entering the vessel, double check that this has beendone. . It is also a good idea to have a towel handy to wipe up anysmall spills.
Gasoline, being a blend of different hydrocarbons does not freeze at any single temperature.The heavier elements solidify at between -200 and -300F, which is darn cold.I…f it is that cold outside I would not drive.
Without asking how the dried egg got on the windows, I would like to suggest simply using hot, soapy water and a scrub pad. If the egg is on the outside of the window, a… good hosing down and scrubbing should remove it.
How much gasoline is in the fuel tank when the low fuel warning light comes on for a Chevy Venture van?
Answer Roughly 30-45 miles. About 1-2 gallons. This is standard for most vehicles, giving the driver enough warning to make it to a gas station.
There are many carb/choke cleaners on the market, however, I would be leary of any of them that will harm plastic. A cleaner that I am particularly fond of using is Merc…ury Power Tune. This product dissolves gum very well, and I have not seen any problems when sprayed on plastics. Simply spray it into a small container, ( a carb bowl works well ), and soak until part is clean.
Peat. It is dug up, Chopped into blocks, and dried so it can be burned to make fuel.
No. algae requires sunlight to grow, and gasoline is harmful to most living things. However, algae like organisms, called microbes, can survive in water contaminated die…sel fuel. They form large colonies that can infest the entire fuel system of a diesel powered engine.
Remove it and take the tank unit out and if it isn't too bad you can get rags in and work them with screwdrivers and get it clean. If it is too bad for that, take it to a rad…iator shop as they can boil it out.
You can use a power washer to clean aluminum pontoons. The power washer will remove most of the dirt. To remove additional discoloration you can use a product such as Bark…eepers friend.
you have to physically drop the the fuel tank. Remove the electric pump apparatus that will give you access to the inside of the tank. inspect it and clean it. Note:a noisy pu…mp is a sure indicator that the pump is going Bad so make choice during this procedure
Because you can't get a siphon down into the tank, and there isn't any sort of drain plug, the best observed method is to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel filter, and th…en, with a bucket set to catch the fuel, turn the ignition to on, this will result in the engine trying to prime, where it'll just run till the tank is empty.
The composition of most exhaust fuel is Nitrogen, H20, CO2, and a small amount of CO (from incomplete combustion), HCs (from unburnt fuel), NOx (from excessive combustion temp…eratures), and ozone.
Yes, it also can have a chance to change colors and sing songs.
