I have a tank that used to have gas in it 40 plus years ago. This tank has had no gas in it for for sure 25 years and has no smell of gas. Is it safe to cut open and start build? How would you guys recommend this process, would you fill with water or can I just cut it open? Any help would be great. Thanks in advance.

Thinks everyone for your input I have cut and welded many diesel tanks and even cut tanks that I pored gas out of but never one that has set for so long. I was thinking I should just to be safe.
