usually in alloy tanks and larger alloy carburettors,

Yep, I used to see these sugary crystal deposits quite often in motorcycles that had been lying about for a long time, mostly pot metal carbs like Amal........and that was when petrol was petrol.

In reflection I think the crystals grow from the alloy and may be some kind of salts leaching due to corrosion.....also fairly common in outboards
