I've never had any problems after cleaning a tank but a tank with baffles is harder to clean. Some use argon to purge any oxygen inside so an explosion can't happen and I've seen guys run an exhaust hose from a vehicle for a purge. If it's clean and there is NO CHANCE of any gas hiding inside, you should be fine. I've even been inside of gasoline storage tanks in a refinery while welding work was going on. All they do is clean em before welding. Also, good ventilation is a good idea too....
