Trash in gas tank

I don't suppose there is a way to get the trash out of the bottom of a gas tank, is there? Doesn't seem like anything should get though the screen on the fuel valve, but if there is a way to flush the tank out, please share it with me.

The only way I know of is to remove it and slosh it out with gas and drain it out and keep doing that till its cleaned out.

can you remove the shut-off valve assembly from the tank that will help wash it out easier.

This.

I figure that about 1/16 of gas at a time will do.

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

Yes I removed the valve assembly to clean the screen. What if I let the tank dry out and blow compressed air through the vent hose on the cap? Maybe it will force loose trash out of the valve hole?
