A lot of thieves have tried, but I don't know of many that succeeded. I quit trying to siphon gas from the cap 30 years ago when they started putting springs into the filler hoses just to discourage the practice. And nowadays, anyway, the filler hoses have too many bends in them.
No, I don't think you can, but you could pull off the filler hose from the gas tank fitting and put in a siphon hose right into the tank there.
Another possibility is to shoot 12 volts battery power to the fuel pump (it could be done at the fuel pump relay's position), then disconnect the gas line at a convenient location, like at the fuel filter, and let the pump push all the gas out.
have to drop the gas tank its located inside, once tank is down will have a metal lock ring that hold the assembly in place take a flat tip screw driver and a hammer and tap the ring around to unlock position and pull up on the metal lines should come free becare full there sometime a plastic or rubber oring/seal under try not to damage it after that remove the fuel assembly and replace with new then reverse your process to put back in
To replace the fuel filter of Your 1999 grand voyager, please follow the steps below, You will be in need of these instruments, Line wrench set, 3/8-inch ratchet and socket set, Replacement fuel filter kit.
Park the 1999 Grand Voyager in a ventilated area and engage the emergency brake,
Walk to the back of the 1999 Plymouth Grand Voyager and completely unscrew the gas cap from the fill neck on the gas tank. Taking the cap off will remove the pressure in the fuel filter.
Jack the back of the 1999 Grand Voyager up and put the jack stands under the rear jack points. Slowly release the jack so that the van is sitting evenly and securely on the jack stands.
Slide under the passenger-side rear of the van behind the tire. Locate the fuel filter that is mounted to the upper part of the gas tank. This type of fuel filter has three fuel lines coming out of it.
Position the drip pan under the gas tank in the general vicinity of the fuel filter. Using a clean rag, compress the fuel lines on the ends. The fuel lines are held to the fuel filter by a plastic clip. Compressing the end of the fuel line will unlock the fuel line from the clip. Pull out on the fuel lines. Do this to all three of the fuel lines.
Remove the bolt from the fuel filter bracket with the 3/8-inch drive ratchet and a 3/8-inch drive socket. Then, pull the fuel filter out of the bracket and put it into the drip pan.
Position the new fuel filter into the bracket. Screw the mounting bolt in and tighten it down tight with the ratchet and socket.
Push all three fuel lines onto the appropriate fuel filter ports. Hook the fuel lines to the same fuel filter ports that they were hooked to on the old filter.
Pull the drip pan out from under the van. Screw the gas cap back onto the fill neck of the gas tank until it clicks. Then, turn the ignition key on and off five different times. Crank the engine on the fifth turn of the ignition. Inspect the new fuel filter for leaks while the engine is running. Then, turn the engine off.
1999 Grand Voyager back up and pull the jack stands out from under the van. Lower the van back to the ground and slide the jack out.

Yes you can install an inline fuel pump but dropping the tank is pretty easy.It'll take you just a few hours at the most( you wont get gas in your face).And it'll be good for another 10-15 years or more.Make sure it's close to empty.If you do install an inline pump put it as close to the tank as possible after the filter.
There is a filter on the tank vent that is plugged. It is not letting the air escape from the tank during fillup causing positive pressure which will will shut off the gas pump. I don't know where it is on your model but some are under the back behind the fuel tank. It is usually a 6" square plastic box with a hose on it and louvers on the sides.
Fuel injection motors have in the tank fuel pump and screen .Access from under back seat,fold forward and move carpet forward after popping out plastic carpet retainer plugs.move floor plate,phillips screwdriver ,no need to unplug electric.remove gas hose,tuck forward out of way.unplug electric plug and remove screws from top of tank and gently pull up and tilt toward gas tank filler so that the gas gauge float and rod is not ruined.the plastic pickup screen will need to be folded to get out of tank.removing the float controll with small nuts is a good idea. the pump has a screw in the bottom that probably needs a vise grip if the phillips head rounds out. everthing is slip apart from this point.pay attention to plastic over the intake nipple and rubber o ring and piece up in the intake line.ebay has reasonable pumps.look at pictures and see the screen and plastic parts that you may need.the rubber on bottom of pump may need to be trimmed because of groove channel may have metal insert in your new pump. unless new one is with new pump.kind of tricky to put back together.but is do able .
On a 1996 Jeep Cherokee you have to pull the fuel tank.I am not sure on your model. It is not very hard to do. The tank on my vehicle is plastic and is held on by straps. Just put a jack under the tank and loosen the straps. As you lower the tank you can get to the connections to unplug the wiring. Once you have it on the ground, the fuel pump has a retaining ring that holds it in. It will unscrew and the fuel pump will come out.
I found the problem!!! There is a square steel box under a plastic cover under the gas tank. This box is to filter the gas fumes that comes out of the gas tank when filling. Well the hose from the filler neck (or tank) fell off and was hanging there. I put the hose back on (very easy) and that was that, no more problem! I talked to so many people and mechanics and no one knew about this problem. I suffered with this for so long!. So do it yourself and save a ton I'm sure.
