Default dirty fuel tank

Looks like I have a dirty fuel tank. the gas/oil mixture is backing up on the top side of my new in-line filter. The carburetor is not getting gas. I took the filter off cleaned the gas that was in the fuel line and put it back together. It ran for a moment then stopped running again. Now I'm back to square one.... So here's my question:

How do you properly clean out a gas tank? This is not a trick question... I really don't know. I need for someone to point me in a direction. Tomorrow I plan to take the tank off, empty it, and clean it (somehow). What is the best way to do that? I really appreciate any help in this matter.
