Hi again. I had made a new tin fuel tank yesterday for a control line model I am getting going. So, my tank is all finished and soldered, but now come the cleaning. Can I use 'Mineral Spirits' to flush it with? Fill it up, cap all vents, shake and leave sit for a bit. Blow out fuel and repeat? Would this be alright. After this, I would run alcohol through it just to clean it up. Thank you in advance.

Just an extra step. The alcohol should take everything out. It won't hurt anything and if you feel better doing it go for it.

I always do water first and pressure test in the sink.
