Bypass/jumper the fuel pump relay, disconnect the supply line to the injectors and turn the key on, it will pump the tank dry in about 10 minutes if it's full. You can't siphon a newer car due to the anti-siphon design of the filler neck.

    True; the anti-siphon anti-splashback valve is located at the bottom end of the large metal fuel filler neck. To get the gas out you will have to loosen the clamp on the rubber hose and pull it off to be able to insert a hose for siphoning. I was able to get out 10 gallons of new gas this way for my car that was in an accident. The rubber hose was quite stuck to the metal pipe, but by unscrewing the fasteners holding the filler pipe to the filler door housing and the fender well I was able to flex the pipe around enough to remove it completely. It is much easier to access while the wheel is off and the car is propped up on jack stands.

How to drain my 2006 Dodge Durango fuel tank


If the pump will still run, you can open a fuel line, maybe use hose on line to aim down into a container and drain that way. Don't take any lines loose unless your sure no pressure on the system. Sometimes you can get under vehicle remove fill hose from gas tank, then use a siphon hose in the gas tank. Your local auto store probably has a plastic siphon hose, that has a squeeze bulb on it to create a siphon, so you don't have to use your mouth. I don't know if that will reach down the fill tube? In my younger years, they called a siphon hose an okla credit card. I'm almost 70 now, don't like getting gas in my mouth.lol

What is the best way to get old gas out of a 1999 Pontiac grand Prix GT 3.8 liter v6


Curtis, Not an easy task to siphon out of GM's, may have to take the filler tube off to get a siphon hose to go past the back flow ball found in a lot of GM's. There are other ways, just be very careful as gas is very flammable and can be dangerous. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

How to drain gas tank on 1984 ford ltd crown victoria to remove the old gas?


If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.

How do you remove the fuel pump on a 1990 Chevy Lumina APV?


The fuel pump is in the gas tank. Drive off or siphon out as much gas as you can. You will need to remove the filler hose. Drop the tank and remove the fuel lines on the top of the tank, Turn the ring counter clock wise that holds the siphon and pump in. Once the ring is loose, lift the the siphon and pump assembly out of the tank. The pump is on the bottom of the siphon. Replace, then reverse the process.

I need to siphon the gas out of the car. I bought a siphon kit and put the correct hose from the pump into the tank, but the hose does not even get wet from the gas. The car was just filled up to capacity...


as you are pushing the hose in the tank twist the hose so it rolls over and it should go in, the hose will probably need to be three feet long, you may have to go to lowes or home depot and get a longer hose that will also fit the siphon pump

How do you replace a fuel pump for a 2000 hyundai sonata, 2.4 engine? Where is the fuel pump located?


You will have to obtain a siphon kit from your local auto parts store and siphon the gas out of your gas tank, you will need to drop your gas tank out of your vehical, the electronic fuel pump is located inside the gas tank, the reason for removing the gas out of the tank is because of you try and remove the tank with it halfway full or full the tank will be to heavy and you run the risk of dropping it and ripping off the delivery and return lines as well as the electrical connections for the pump from the vehical, so make sure you have a way of draining the gas it will make your job much easier as far as removal of the tank is concerned......

How do I drain the fuel out of my 2000 VW Bettle


The easiest way to drain the fuel is to siphon the fuel from the tank through a small polypropylene hose inserted down the filler port. Be careful to push the metallic flap aside when inserting and removing the siphon hose, a small screwdriver with a large handle should work fine (so you can't drop the screwdriver into the gast tank). The only other way will be to drop the gas tank, but they recommend siphoning the gas out before you actually remove the gas tank straps. You will also need to disconnect the battery cables before you drop the tank to avoid any sparks from the wire connections.
