Ouch!
Did you run the car?
Instead of siphoning, look for a drain, and be sure to flush all of that gasoline out of lines from the tank to the injectors!

SOURCE: I need to drain the tank on a 2001 vw jetta tdi

Disconnect fuel hose that connects to fuel rail on the motor. Connect that hose to a rubber hose and lead it into a container. Then you have 1 of 2 options. First is just turn the key on for 3 seconds, turn off, then on again, etc etc etc, till tank is empty. This will take a while but easy if tank is almost empty. 2 would be to find the power to the fuel pump. Run a live wire from battery to fuel power wire and pump will run till you disconnect power. It can be a pain in the but to find the power wire though.

Your sending unit has failed and needs to be replaced. It's an assembly attached to the fuel pump inside the gas tank. In your trunk floor or under your rear seat is an access panel, through which you can get to the pump and sending unit. You'll need to replace it and then you'll be good to go.

SOURCE: 2012 VW Jetta TDI battery won't hold charge and car only clicks and won't start

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

Can u easily siphon gas from a 98 montana? We cant get the rear bolt off thermostat housing to change the thermostat and just filled the tank


Cars and trucks manufactured since the late 70's have anti-siphoning screens at the bottom of the fill tube to the tank. So, sorry to say, no you can't siphon this new gas. I can truly commiserate with you as it's happened more than once. I've just filled my tank and the vehicle bites the big one. The only way to get to that gas is to drop the tank.

What is the best way to deal with 2 gallons of gas in 2003 TDI? I can't get a hose in deep enough to siphon it. Am thinking about removing line to fuel pump.


FOR TDI ENGINES WHICH IS TURBO DIESEL INJECTION. THE FUEL SYSTEM CONSISTS OF FUEL INJECTION PUMP WHICH DRAW FUEL FROM FUEL TANK THROUGH A FUEL FILTER NO OTHER FUEL PUMP IS USED. YOUR FUEL INJECTION PUMP HAS A ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP BUILT INSIDE INJECTION PUMP ITSELF YOU DONT HAVE TO DROP FUEL TANK.FUEL PUMP IS UNDER THE HOOD.YOUR FUEL INJECTION PUMP IS THE FUEL SUPPLY PUMP.

I need to siphon the gas out of the car. I bought a siphon kit and put the correct hose from the pump into the tank, but the hose does not even get wet from the gas. The car was just filled up to capacity...


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

I filled the subtank with unleaded instead of dieselhow do i drain it


You need to remove tank from vehicle and drain. Then take UNLEADED and put 2 gallons in rinse with unleaded redrain and then reinstall and put gas in. This will prevent engine damage.
