First, don't syphon by mouth -- gasoline is poisonous -- can be deadly.

I would suggest buying a bulb hand-syphon at Pep Boys (or similar) -- cost about $2 or 3.

Just put one end in the tank, the other in you gas can, pump bulb.

Note:
Since you're using the term Petrol, you may not have a Pep Boys in your area, but you get the idea (do-it-yourself auto parts store).

I think someone put the wrong fuel in it and now its close to empty I've got to drain the tank on it and I don't even know where the draian is or should I just flip the damn thing over?


tipping the car over damages the paint work and will still not drain the tank better to disconnect the hose from the fuel pump and turn the car on
collect the fuel in a container
or you could just fill that tank with the right fuel and the contamination will be diluted right down to very little problem
pity you could not mention what the wrong fuel was as any petrol grade fuel ( all octane ratings including e-10 mix) will not damage a vehicle and if it was disilene for diesel engines then the mix will only cause it to smoke lightly if at all when mixed with a full tank of petrol
again you never mentioned the engine type so if it is a diesel engine then you have to get the petrol out of the tank by the method suggested

I have accidentally put petrol into my turbo deisel forester, it now has 30 % petrol in the tank, will this cause any damage and will I be ok if I start to run down the fuel and add more deisel ?


Yes, this can damage the engine, do not run the vehicle. You need to drain the tank completely, as well as drain the lines and may even change the fuel filter.

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.

MY FIAT STRATA DOESNT GET PETROL BECAUSE OF PRESSURE BUILD UP IN THE PETROL TANK.WHEN YOU OPEN THE TANK CAP,IT RELEASES THE PRESSURE AND THE ENGINE THEN STARTS


The tank is airlocked and it is possible that the overflow drain is clogged which makes the air lock when the fuel flows to the pump. Please check this tubing which goes from the filling pipe line of the fuel tank and check for block or damage.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.
