Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
I tried to siphon bad gas from my 2000 Toyota Tundra using a bulb type siphon. The plastic tube will not enter the tank far enough. There seems to be something in the tank that will not allow the tube to reach the bottom of the tank. How can I remove the bad gas from the tank?

The syphon method is by far the easiest and you should try a smaller stiff hose to get the job done. About the only other way is to find the fuel line that comes out of the fuel pump, disconnect it, attach a hose to it, which could be difficult and turn on the ignition and let the pump, do the work.

it should have a guard where it goes into the tank to prevent people from stealing gas. my recommendation is A. try a long skinnier hose and dip it down as far as possible and then retrieve it and see if the end is wet with fuel. B. drop the fuel tank.

There is a safety block in there that doesn't aloow them to be syphoned. Sorry to tell you. If you are needing to get the gas out then you will have to drop the tank. It sucks cause it is alot of work but that is the only way it can be done.

easy ,take pipe off under the bonnet that feeds the injection system ,then run a wire direct from the battery to the live wire on the pump ,on top of the sender unit under the seat are two heavy wires and two light wires ,well teh heavy wires are the feed and the earth for the fuel pump ,wire will spark if you touch the earth one or the pump will run if you hit the feed wire ,simple
