Question Biodiesel Can Cleanout Question

We'll soon be selling our 2010 TDI back to VW. Years ago I bought a very nice industrial-grade 2 GA fuel can so that we could run a small percentage (less than 5%) of biodiesel in each tank, as supplied by a local retailer.

I'd like to keep the can for lawnmower gasoline.

I emptied the last drops of bio in our TDI and have water-rinsed the can multiple times. The rinsewater runs clear, but I can still smell a light (and not unpleasant odor) of biodiesel in the can.

Is there a trick to cleaning a biodiesel container? I'm thinking that I'm probably okay to use it as is, but I invite ideas. Thank you.

Shouldn't be an issue with what you have already done. Make sure the can is dry and fill with gas.
