The only proper way is to remove the gas tank completely and drain all the fuel out. The clean/dry out completely then re install it. Before putting fresh gas back into it.

The old gas will cause hard starting for sure as it is 15 years old but if you don't have very much in the tank you can mix in some new gas.

If the old gas is bad you should remove the tank, dump the gas, and clean the inside of the tank. You may have to siphon the gas to get to the point where you can manage the tank to remove it.

I need to drain the gas how do I


You will probably have to drop the tank then remove the hose to the engine. YOu can then drain the tank change the filters and blow back through the tube from the front to get any dirt out.
replace the tank and filters and fill the tank.
YOu might also want to take the tank to an old radiator shop where they can boil it out to get the scale off the inside.

I have a 1991 Honda accord ex..it has been sitting for years now it wont start where should I start I was told that the gas turns to funk after sitting for a long time.


if it is posible for you to drain the the old gasoline out and refill the tank with fresh gasoline that would be great, but if you only have a1/4 tank and draining the tank is not posible fill your tank up with supreme gas not regular the better grade gas with the high octane will dilute the old gas and help burn off the gas when the car starts.if you have more then 1/2 a tank try to pump out the gas with a driil pump, you can buy these a your local hardware store insert hose in filler neck of the tank.you should also remove the spark plugs and with and oil can add 8 good pumps of the can of motor oil in the cylinders do not replace plugs **** with a freshly charged battery turn the engine over few time in 2 or 3 second intervals this will kleen any rust that would have built up on the cylinder walls and also lube up the cylinder wall so that at start up the cylinder wont be dry ,add a few more sqirts of oil between turnovers.Replace spark plug if old ones look bad put spark plug in and start her up its going to smoke a bit at firts **** it will stop after the oil that was put in the cylinders burns off,let the engine idle for 10-15 minutes before putting any strain on motor give it a chance to clean out cylinders burn a few tanks of gas and change gas filter it should be fine.

Your best bet is to go to the auto part store and buy a gas tank siphon kit and siphon the gas out of your car.

How to get gas out of a 1995 dodge?


If the point you disconnect the pipe from the motor is higher than the top of the gas tank you will not have a leak.
If you still want to drain the tank, you can get a hand siphon pump from a hardware or big box store and use it to siphon the gas out through the gas tank inlet. Drain into a certified gas can. No smoking.

How do you change the fuel pump in a 1992 old cutlass cieria


I'm sorry to tell you that the only way is to empty the tank and remove the straps to drop it. You will also need a special tool to disconnect the lines from the pump, these are available from most autoparts stores, and cost less than $20.00. As for draining the tank the autoparts store should also have a siphon hose to help you with that.
