Im guessing there is a hive in the gas tank that you are going to cut out. If so you would think the fumes would have kept the bees out.

If you look in picture #4 you'll see the bees . I'm going to trap them out and  keep a picture file to show success or failure . Undecided

You might have better success cutting them out.  Would be a heck of a lot less stressful on them.

Very cool.  After seeing those photos the first thing I thought of was "trap out"  Honestly,trap outs are pretty easy.  It'll take around 2 months, but it's nowhere near as labor intensive as a cut out.  You won't get the queen but you will have a nice fresh one in the hive you get from the trap out.  From your "slimmed" photo's there are SHB's in your neck of the woods.  I've not done a trap out with SHB's but I have been told if done in early spring they're no problem.
