Never introduce water into a gas tank.

The factory service manual 99484-69 recommends, for gas tank storage, rinse the tank with a 50:50 mixture of oil and gasoline. Need only a small quantity. The gasoline evaporates leaving the oil to protect the tank.

Page number 3F-35. I believe that this is not in any of the newer versions.
