That all makes sense except that when I topped off both tanks at Green Turtle it only took 72 gallons.

Problems with the pick up tubes were the first indication of the trouble that we had on PLUSH TOY. It was after seeing the tubes that we tested the fuel and determined that we had received some diesel mixed with gasoline.

With regard to cleaning the tanks, I used LUK FUEL here in Florida. They did a very thorough job emptying and scrubbing the tanks.
