If the tank has never been use for fuel I would think a good shot of bleach water and then a good rinse with baking soda water to take the bleach away would do the trick. When one considers the tank material that we all have had water from and the source of that water a good gas tank unused should be fine.

Biker - You could check with the manufacturer and see what they recommend. They should know how the tank was constructed and of what materials and if there would be any problems using it for water instead of fuel. Personally I don't think there would be any harm, provided you flush and sterilize the tank first.
