How to siphon fuel tank in 2000 Toyota Tundra

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?

SOURCE: how to extract gasoline from gas 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.

SOURCE: 1995 Ford Mustang Fuel Siphon Problem

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.

SOURCE: Trying to syphon gas from a 2000 toyota camry and

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.

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

When I try and siphon gas from my 1991 Olds Cutlass Supreme, I can't seem to get the hose all the way into the gas tank. Is there some type of restriction that hinders siphoning?


You can,t there is a ball inside that will let fuel in Its there so if the vehicle rolls over the ball moves beck to stop the fuel spilling out of the tank You would need to disconnect the fuel inlet hose at the tank to siphon fuel from the tank

My 2000 Chev S10 Blazer needs the fuel pump replaced. I would like to know can I sphion out the gas and how? Where can I get a diagram to show me how?


if it is less than half just drop the tank, otherwise stick a hose in the filler tube and siphon into a bucket. make sure that the outside end of hose is lower than the gas tank. if your worried about how to do it you shouldn't try it on your own. buy a siphon kit.

Can't fill the gas tank on 98 Toyota Camry


I have a 2000 camry that I just fixed today. there is a vent tube and valve on the carbon canister that is located just behind the gas tank and above the cross member. this vent tube will get plugged up by ( of all things ) spiders, dirt daubers, and I even had a mouse pack the tube with dog food. Just remove the tube and the valve from the canister and clean them out. You will now be able to fill your gas tank again.

Why do they tell you not to overfill gas tank


The actual reason is maximize your fuel mileage.
The engineering is as follows:
There are times when the fuel injectors shut off when you are driving, like going down a long hill. There is no need for the injectors to "work", as you are coasting without giving it any gas. But, the engine will stall out with no injector action. So, how does Toyota keep the engine running? From the gasoline FUMES in the fuel tank. There is a tube on top of the fuel tank whch siphons the fuel vapours...The vapours then are stored in something called a charcaol canister, in which the "charcoal" absorbs the fumes from the tank, and, when coasting, the injectors stop injecting, and the stored fumes are admitted into the intake manifold thru a valve controlled by the Electronic Control Unit, or ECU. The fumes are used by the engine, thusly maximizing your mileage, other than losing them by letting them escape out from under the fuel cap. Now, to answer your question: If the vehicle is "overfilled", there is no place for the fumes, other than in the top of the filler neck. And the siphon tube is on top of the tank. The ECU sees the overfill condition as a "blockage" in the fuel fume vent line (only fumes should be in this tube), and said "blockage" will transmit this to the ECU, thru a sensor, & turn on your check engine light. The overfill actually "lies" to the ECU, even though there is nothing wrong. Best thing to do: When filling the tank, stop after the handle clicks off.
I hope that I have explained this to your liking.
