Cleaning an old system

Postby 1stCityVeg » Sat May 06, 2017 10:42 pm

Hey all,

A few months ago I purchased a car with a two tank WVO system in it. I've been learning the ropes of the system and of WVO usage in general. I've come to the conclusion that it would be a good idea for me to try and deep clean the tank and possible the lines as well. I'm wondering how you guys clean your tanks? What sort of cleaner should I use? Any tips for a novice? Thanks.

I have never needed to clean any of my 3 different vehicles tanks in > 11 years of doing this. Look in the tank and lines and FPHE and see if its dirty before trying to clean.

used to presoak the whole car with a spray bottle of isopropyl alcohol than 5 minutes later use a can of nitro wash. The alcohol shouldn't affect the electronics because it evaporates but I try and stay away from electronics as much as possible. But like Celica says, take it apart from every month or two and clean everything off real good.
