Cleaning a Fuel Tank
 
Anyone know where I could get my FJ40 fuel tank cleaned out? I know some places won't boil them anymore. CCOT sells a steel replica for $207. Probably worth it. :)

That new steel tank seems like a pretty good deal actually. Other wise, you could always use a POR 15 tank refeurb kit. I've used them a few times on old motorcycle tanks. It's basically a cleaner/acid/etching/coating system. Works really well and lasts.

Over the years, Kittredge Auto Radiator has been good to me. I recently had a radiator recored, but discovered that they had moved from Colfax and Rooney Road to around 1st and Garrison in Lakewood. Like most radiator shops, they do gas tanks too. I think they are called Jeffco Auto or some such now, but most of the same staff and equipment remains. Good knowledgeable folks who know Land Cruisers.

Thanks guys. I'll check in to both of these, too.

I tried to stop by Kittredge radiator the other day right next to Suzies (biker bar) and the newer shop in that building told me they had moved. I'd look up a number before you try to hunt them down because from what the guy told me they moved a pretty good distance (atleast for my cheap gas saving butt). $207 sounds like a great deal for a new gas tank if you ask me. I'm sure MAF sells an extended range tank for a grand lol.
