What is in the fuel tank????

Post by RASSIE » Sun 24 Aug 2008, 19:29

Hi to all, this is what I got from a "6 cylinder engine Fairmont" with 30 000 miles on the clock. No wonder it stop to work.
Cheers Rassie.

What did it smell like? We spilt some old petrol out of a tank once and it stunk out the place for months, seeped into the ground and we could'nt get rid of it.

Rassie if you read the comments on the Fairmont GT site they always complain about our dirty fuel tanks maybe it is RHINO dung

The sapphire GT of mine that stood on blocks for 2 decades also had some very nasty stuff in the tank. I think its quite common on cars that dont get driven often?
