I just bought a small Military 1 burner gasoline stove and wondering what I can use to clean inside of aluminum tank with for it has some old dried up fuel in it. This thing is a M-1950 and is very small like MSR back pack burner. And though it says gasoline I am wondering if I can use white fuel instead??

would try some carb cleaner in the tank. flush out and let dry also clean out needle and generator. most of those have a spare stored on the stove it self.

I have a Svea 123 with a brass tank and I used a strong solutioin of citric acid to clean the inside. I bought a bottle of the concetrated powder from my pharmacist. If you do it, mix two tablespoons to a cup of water. Don't get any on you...it'll burn.;)

The stove will run white gas, MOGAS, and leaded and unleaded gasoline.
