SOURCE: Contaminated fuel

Your best bet is to contact the station where the fuel was purchaced and demand that they pay to have the tank removed and cleaned.Plus ,gasoline can cause internal (diesel) engine damage. The engine should also be tested for damage,especially with regard to cylinder compression pressure.

SOURCE: draining fuel tank

You need to use a small garden hose and keep twisting it an it will go. The problem is there are baffels in the tank that you got to get around use a little patence and it will go, the smaller the hose the better. If you still can't get it you may have to for go getting the gas out and try to balance it on a floor jack. If you elect to do it that way get some help as it will be heavy and ackward.

you could try to siphon the gas out with a hose. careful, though, gas can be harmful or fatal if swallowed.

Before lowering the gas tank on my '94 full size blazer-is there a way in from the floor of the way back inside the blazer or do I need to drop the tank to access the fuel lines? I can't easily...

This is a very dangerous job - working over head - electrical and gas circuits - dirt in the face - heavy tank - draining the fuel - not to mention the reinstall and reassembly. I am a back yard mechanic - I have done 5 for myself and I will never do another one.

Typically - no - there is no way to get into the tank other than to remove it to get access to the innards.

I need to drain the gas tank on my 2002 dodge

Hopefully your not attempting to replace a fuel pump in this vehicle or the tank its self?

There is no drain plug you have to purchase a fuel extractor pump. They are manual or electric. You put pump hose in tank threw fill up and start pumping the fuel out into its container.

I may have put water in the gas tank what should I do? i used two bottles of water evaporator already and it still wont start. Do I need to do major work now?

you will have to try and drain it out, if there is no drain plug, remove fuel tank, water evaporator will only deal with small amounts of moisture, you will also need a new fuel filter and drain the carb(unless it is injected) and the water can corrode the injectors after time

Someone poured bleach in my daughters gas tank. I need to know what to do ??

If you haven't already do so, have a police report filed so when and if someone is caught, you can bring them to small claims court and reclaim some or all of your $ for damages.Small claims court will not cost you a nickel.
The 1st thing that needs to be addressed is evacuation of the fuel tank. This can be done by relieving the pressure in the fuel system, then removing a supply hose near the fuel tank and let the fuel drain into a container or use a siphon pump to evacuate the fuel from the tank.
The next step would be to remove the fuel supply rail and fuel injectors from the engine and blow it out with compressed air. I don't know what year vehicle you have or engine size, but the procedure to accomplish the previously mentioned is all the same...meaning the fuel system will need to be disassembled and flushed with clean fuel then drained again to be sure all contaminants are evacuated. This is not any easy task and will require some expertise to accomplish correctly.

Fuel pump 98 s10

You must first drain and lower the fuel tank, as your pump is mounted inside. With the fuel tank supported, undo the tank mounting straps, and the filler hose, then slowly lower it until you can disconnect the fuel lines and electrical harness. The pump assembly is now accessable. Remove and replace the assembly , then reinstall the tank .

Locate fuel filter

That truck has two fuel filters.
The first filter in the system, mounted in the gas tank, is attached to the tank drain plug. This filter is of a screen type construction and prevents most larger contaminants from entering the fuel supply line.The second, or primary filter in the system, is located in the engine compartment. Attached is a picture of the second filter. Hope it helps! Happy motoring!adf2b94.gif
