SOURCE: How to open the fuel

If you have the fuel tank lowered from the vehicle most cars have a brass or gold colored ring its about 4-6 inches across and is around the fuel lines going inside the tank (usually on top). (not the fill tubes though usually on corner or edge) it will have 5-8 small tabs sticking up about 3/16 of an inch. The ring spins by being tapped carefully with hammer and screwdriver so the ring rotates until the tabs are in the open cut outs and then the ring and fuel assembly lifts out of the tank. Do it slowly and carefully because you will have to lean it forward and backward to get it all out.

SOURCE: Is there an easy way to drain an X trail fuel tank

No easy way really, the best way is to get hold of an external electric petrol pump, put this inline before the diesel lift pump (With plunger on top in engine bay) and run a hose from this into a container, you then supply power to the pump and wait for it to drain, Make sure you tow the truck to a gas station and fill it completely with diesel to dilute any remaining residue of petrol to avoid engine damage and make sure you don't rev the vehicle as soon as you start it, leave it to idle for ten mins or so to avoid injector damage.

Water in 2005 Nissan Pathfinder gas tank yet to start car or turn key over yet. How do I drain fuel tank of everything?

If the tank does not have a drain plug, you could syphon the fuel from the tank from the filler tube, or disconnect the fuel line at the intake and use the pump to discharge the fuel into a container before it gets to the injectors. Water mixed with fuel should not damage the pump.
And there is no filter in the line, only a screen before the pump inside the tank.
Using the pump in the tank would require you to jumper the pump relay to keep it pumping.

How do i change a fuel filter on a Nissan x-trail

Most fuel filters are designed for long life,I.e., fine plastic mesh not paper. They're usually located in the gas tank attached to the fuel pump. It means removing the fuel tank as most cars don't have access holes. I would try some Dri-gas for a tank or two then a major brand of mid-range octane gas at the 'red,white & blue' gas brands as they'll add cleaners to their gas.

Need to drain fuel from tank where is this located

The tank is under the vehicle, directly in line with the filler, attached to the vehicle chassis rail or floor. Not sure on the Nissan pickup, a lot of fuel tanks don't have a drain plug, the method is to syphon as much as you can out through the filler, if that won't work connect an electric pump up to the fuel line at the fuel filter and pump it out

Filled tank accidently with diesel

No problem!!! Just syphon the tank and refill with gas. try to get as much diesel out as possible, obviously, but a quart or two mixed with the gas won't hurt, as a matter of fact it will act like a fuel system cleaner and lubricator. Beyond two quarts to 16 gallon tank and some egr system damage could occur.

The tank is almost full, but no matter how i put the hose in I can't get it to go down far enough to syphon the gas out

Hi, there are baffles in the filler pipe designed to prevent siphoning. If you need to drain the tank, I would disconnect the filter and use the fuel pump to drain it.

The best way to remove the fuel tank. You can't get all of the fuel out of the system without tank removal.

You will also want to flush the system out to remove the incorrect fuel from the filter, lines etc.

It may be best to have a mechanic do this for safety reasons.


The fuel line could be removed in the engine compartment and pump all of the fuel into a container (can be dangerous if done improperly). You would need to use the vehicles fuel pump to empty the tank.
Then you can add the correct fuel and flush the system.

You may even want to change the fuel filter also.
