Excessive Oil in tank

I've slowly been repairing this old ped and one of the steps I took to halt any further rust in the gas tank(after "sanding" the inside) was to dump in a whole can of two-stroke oil and shake it around so that the entire inside was covered.

I'll drain out any oil that has pooled in the tank but if I pour a load of gas in it and try to run it as is, the first load of gas is going to be over-oiled.

Was this "not-smart" and what should I do? Should I pull off the gas line and run a few gallons through to flush out the oil or should I just put in a fresh gallon and run it till it stops smokin?
