If you have a compressor, remove the tank and you should be able to use one
of those cheap engine cleaning wands that attaches to an air hose and has a
pick-up line for cleaning solution. The wands are cheap (about $9.00 in
almost any parts store or Tractor Supply) and have a 45-degree angled tip so
you can get the sides of the tank when you intert the wand through the fill
Here is an example from Northerntool.com
First try it with clear water, but if that doesn't work well enough you
should be able to use just about any cheap cleaning solution (non-flammable)
just be sure to rinse out the tank completely afterward. Don't try this
with the tank still installed or with antifreeze still in it - the spray
from the wand will come out of the fill opening and go everywhere.

Sorry but I had to laugh at your reply. The reason I don't suggest this
method is that if you use a car wash wand the water it sprays into the
cannister must come out of the cannister somewhere - and usually at a pretty
good velocity as well. At least if you use the clenaing wand attached to an
air compressor you will only be using a minute amount of fluid as compared
to the car wash nozzle. It will still make a mess, but be LOT easier to
control and you won't have to wear a bathing suit!
