SOURCE: I need to siphon the

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

SOURCE: Family in New York Bad storm damage. Gas shortage and need to run geneators. Anti-siphon device hindering fuel use. Any ideas hew to access gas from 2012 suburban?

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.

Does a 2001 Chevy lumina have an anti syphon device


I'm pretty sure all these newer cars have a screen in the filler hose. Very difficult to siphon gas anymore. Try taking off the filler hose at the tank, then you can get a hose into the tank.

Most cars have an anti siphoning device in the filler tube that resembles a screen so you can't put a tube down to be able to siphon gas out of the tank.

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

Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve between the filler tube and the gas tank?


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.

Gas tank


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.
