Then remove the rag, and blow it out best you can. New lines and filters and anything you miss in the tank should be caught by the fuel filter.
CP241, I do appreciate what you do on this forum and never meant to correct you .

I knew you were thinking of the workhorse and how easy the tank is to remove.
These TXT carts are a pain to remove the gas tank when they could have designed them a much different way. Always wondered why

Yes the ezgo tanks are a b**ch to get out.

Drain the fuel with a vacuum pump and discard. Put a little more fuel in, pump it out again. Repeat until all the trash is out. Then use a long stick with a shop rag zip tied to the end like a swab, then use it to rub the inside of the tank to get the slimy stuff. Put some more fuel in, pump out again. Done.

A lady in Titusville FL had a gas can turn over in the trunk of her car. She went to a car wash and commenced vacuuming it out with the vacuum there. It exploded, blew the vacuum apart and burned it up. She and her car were uninjured. In 1972 a similar incident blew the windows out of a Chrysler Plymouth dealership. Also no injuries except for shock and ringing ears. I was present for that one. Some of life's small events make a lasting impression.
