Question about 2002 Ford Crown Victoria
Fuel is old ,car has been sitting.need to drain old fuel
Okay, this is going to sound a bit different but it works. It is simple and will remove most of the gasoline with the least effort.
Go online and look up the fuel pump Relay and "jumping" this Relay for your year and model car. I did this for my 2002 Grand Marquis and removed about 16 gallons in about 15 minutes. Remove the fuel pump Relay and put a decent gauge wire in the #27 and #34 terminals in the Powerbox only when you want to pump out the gas. Verify these 2 terminals with the article about jumping a Relay. This will cause the fuel pump to run continuously, use only when ready.
You will need a Tire valve stem removal tool and a length of rubber fuel line(4-5 feet) about 1/4 to 5/16 inner diameter. On the Drivers side of the fuel rail there is a test port. It has a valve similar to a tire stem. Remove the valve core. Insert the fuel line over this test port and secure with a small hose clamp.
Have a fuel container ready to pump fuel into. In a well ventilated area you are now ready to pump fuel.
Since the fuel tank has baffles there is little way to drain the tank without dropping the tank and turning in a way to allow for the fuel to run out.
Even disconnecting the disposable fuel filter is not without complications and you would still need to trigger the fuel pump. So for the expense of rubber hose and a valve stem tool the above method is easier.
