Default BAD stuff in the gas tank...

Hi guys, long story short. After discovering my injectors are clogged from the ---- that dislodged in my tank, I removed them to send to an injector shop to get them cleaned and blueprinted. My car hasn't moved for 5 month and has been stored without adding fuel stabilizer in the tank...

I will remove the fuel rail and gas pump from the tank.

What and how you guys would get rid of all the stuff in the tank WITHOUT changing the whole tank?

Could you give me ideas with detailed steps just for me to know if im on the right pathor not... Kaboshe knows about that, he helped me on that one. Huge thanks to him, btw.

I did the same thing, except I NEVER started my car on old fuel, just let it sit.

I drained the tank, added cleaner and ran the fuel line to a bottle. Pumped the old ---- out, like a boss.
