gas tank cleaning

Hi,i had a gas tank in a boat that was really filthy,very bad gas. i drained the tank,put 1 gal of acetone in it and sloshed it around,did the same 2 more times.then shone a flashlight inside tank,to make sure it was clean. then filled tank with soapy water 3 or 4 times,sloshing it around . then turned tank upside down,drained and flushed tank with clean water. after draining as much water from tank as possible,i left the tank in the sun,with the cap off until it dried. worked great.
