Try using the testport on the fuelrail. You will need a compatible fitting, then let electric fuelpump pump out gas with ignition key ON, but do not run the engine .

Or disconnect the fuel filter.

There is an anti-syphon screen in the filler neck of the gas tank. They do not have very large openings and the slightest debris will act like it is blocked. EIther have the screen replaced or completely removed, or don't put gas nozzle completely in the hole

SOURCE: Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve

Yes, it has a wire mesh type anti syphon device, if you desperately need to syphon fuel from the vehicle it can be pushed through with the hose pipe, but you may risk blocking the fuel outlet if the mesh falls into the tank.

How do you get fuel out of my Mountaineer it is full of gas but motor is dead


Most gas tanks are designed to prevent siphoning from thieves since the shortages in the 70's. Easiest way is to hand pump out from the fuel filter. Good luck.

How do I siphon the gas out of my 2003 dodge stratus?


if you cannot get a hose down the filler tube to use as a siphon(anti theft fitted) and there is no drain plug in the tank then a suggestion I can make is to remove the fuel hose from the outlet side of the pump and connect a long hose from there to your fuel tank and turn the fuel pump on. It may take a while but it will work

Can I siphon the gas out of my 1998 Mitsubishi Montero sport the head is cracked and I'm not wanting to wasted3/4 of a tank of gas


Try it but some cars have an anti syphon device in the filler neck to stop fuel theft. The next best is to get a length of fuel hose that fits the fuel line at the pump and run it out to the container . turn on the ignition and let the pump do the work for you.

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
