    Is fuel tank clean enough?

    I'm about to install the dmch combo unit and I just cleaned the tank and want to make sure it's clean enough.

    Lol this wasn't meant as a sarcastic or show off post. DMC's instructions said it should feel gritty, but DPI Josh said the texture is normal. Seemed clean enough but after the fuel pump dying in the middle of a busy interstate I wasn't taking chances.

    It was really easy to clean though. I assumed dmc cleaned it out when they replaced the POs improper fuel pump with the proper oem style. I drove it frequently until it became a daily driver, so this was about as much effort as cleaning a windshield.
