My engine stalled so I switched tanks and kept mowing. I assumed the tank was bone dry as a result. Maybe not.

I haven't looked either. I hope they changed the material of the tube inside the tank. They used to use a clear tubing with a weighted pickup at the end that has a mesh screen on it. The clear tubing would dry rot and start to crack and break off. Not a huge deal its just a matter of replacing the tubing but aggravating none the less.
