Whether it is for a truck, backup generator, or storage tank, be sure to measure the tank length. Choose a snake that will be shorter than the tank itself. Snakes over 7 feet in length will need at least 1 foot of clearance at each end; but don’t skimp on the length, too short a snake in too big a tank will not produce good results. Installation is simple – Just attach the tether to the eyelet in the end of the Snake then lower it into the tank; ensuring that the snake is positioned length ways across the floor of the tank, (thus ensuring optimum coverage), then attach the remaining end of the tether to secure point, such as the filler neck, or tank cap chain, this will allow to facilitate easy removal of the Tank Snake from the fuel tank.To ensure that your fuel and storage system is always protected, check the snake periodically. Once saturated; either drain or replace as required.
