they have a drain plug on them , slide under and undo the drain plug and drain it
lift up the carpetright in the back you will see a black plate with 4bolts undo that under that is the top of the tank with whole lot of 6mm bolts you can remove the rubber pipesand un plug electrical connectorremove that plate that allows you to look in ,reach in etc to get rid of anyrubbish in there

you better tell us more like why you want to clean the tank! as your unlikely got dirt in the tank you probably have a rooted injector pump seal = air in system from there and no blocking of the fuel line in tank.
please explain why and we can assist you better then.

its not a mitsubishi so no need to do that just now

True,but they are renowned for numerous annoying faults.The diesel pumps fail with alarming regularity,as does the drivers window switch.They often vibrate like a massage chair at idle,and their factory stereos are there for decoration purposes only.Guess some people love them though.

Yeah, we have two here that come in regularly with different problems each time. TD27 engine is bloody brilliant, but the rest of it is a heap of shit.

Are you talking about diesel bug! if you are once everything is cleaned out including all the diesel lines, new filters, run some Wynns EDT and keep the tank full, it help stops the bug coming back, there may also be amesh gauze filter on the pump.

Just drop the plug and drain the water it has in the tank, how are you getting water into the tank! have you a leaking fuel cap!

Are you using farm diesel, or from the servo!

A childish reply is about what I expected from someone who got caught out using a fake profile.
