Tanaka Forum question - bar oil in fuel tank!

Since the fillers are opposite my Husky Rancher,by accident I filled my fuel tank with bar oil and wondered why it wouldn' t start!  Dumped it and let it drain upside down for a week or so, flushed it w/ 50:1. pulled it a few times to clear it, dumped the fuel.  It won't start, of course.  Any suggestions are welcome.  Maybe Seafoam?  It's my little saw...

    Have you checked the carburetor for any oil that may be hanging around in there?

    Did you replace fuel filter after this happened?
