If your having problems and suspect bad gas an old an easy test is to put a liter of Methyl hydrate in the tank before you fill up next time. If water is the problem the meth will mix with the H2O and burn just fine.If that doesn't solve the issue then it isn't gas problem.

Antifreeze in gas tank?

I doubt it. I think you have water in your tank because it's no way how antifreeze can go in your tank unless you puuted it there.

To get rid of water in your tank you will need to do that at least 3 times, it depends on how much of water you have.

Shut the power or gas off to the tank. Drain the tank through a hose from the bibb at the bottom of the tank to remove all the rust inside the tank. If the water/rust mixture does not come out, the bottom is full and I would say to buy a new one. Also, check the year of the tank, determined by the serial number.
