Tank Maintenance-Vacuum Water and Debris
Inevitably water and dirt get into a gas tank. Dirt that passes the fuel strainer can cause problems with everything downstream, from the fuel pump valves to the carburetor, and, ultimately, cause engine problems. The effect of water on these parts can be just as bad or worse. water is heavier than gas and settles into the lowest part of the reinforcing channels stamped into the tank, which can cause the tank to rust-through from the inside. Fortunately, it's fairly easy to remove any water and dirt from a gas tank of a '63 to '74 Corvette by using a length of hose and a small metal tube.
