Dirty Gas Tank

Just bought another old MR2. Last one was rear ended by a drunk last Saturday. Bet you've never an MR2 wrecked just in the rear!!!!
The new old car has been sitting up for about 4 years and the fuel pump was toast. Anyway, it has the typical slime and rust in the fuel tank. Anyone have any experience and can tell me a fast, easy way to clean this tank?

Hot water and some degreaser.(CAR WASH) Wash the inside outside out and then throw some rags inside the tank. NOTE: (Count the number of rags you put in the tank and make sure you remove all). Than take a AIR hose and blow the rags around inside the tank to dry the water out.

Thanks hogfan, that's just what I'll do today. I've got a small pressure washer that will do the job nicely.
It looks like you're a razorback fan. Down south here we say;
Geaux Tigers!!

Thanks for the help!
