So I have a 1978 Puch Maxi that had gas sit in it for over ten years... I have used muratic acid 5 times with nuts and bolts to try to clean it out but it still keeps clogging my carb and petcock.

I read the wiki and tried the options listed on there but nothing I do seems to work....

Being that the tank is part of the bike does anyone know how I can get all that jelled up gas out of there? The muratic acid does great on rust but what about the old gas....

Any help would be great, the bike is awesome but this tank is killing me.
