SOURCE: Water in the gas tank
i would go up and get some HEAT they sell it at any auto store it treats up to 15 gallons of gas. HEAT takes the water and trapes it so that there isn't much water left into the tank and allowes the gas to run like it is supposed to..

You'll need to have a fuel line disconnect tool. This tool can be made of plastic or metal, but the utilization is the same. You can purchase these tools at most auto parts stores. The fuel lines have a "quick disconnect" end on them where the filter attaches. After you've relieved the pressure from the fuel line (line pressure's usually around 60psi so you should wear eye protection). Techniques vary you can remove the fuel pump relay, and start the engine till it shuts down, or (needs another special tool). Attach hose from tool to test port on fuel rail by injectors and drain fuel into suitable container. You can also remove the cap from the test port and with a rag covering the port to catch fuel, depress the schrader vale (like a tire valve). This isn't really the best way,because gasoline can get on you and will inevitably get on the engine. Not always a good situation if engines hot. (To be honest with you, at work I usually just slightly disconnect the line at the filter. Only enough to bleed the fuel pressure off and let it drain into a bucket.) To remove, you'll have to insert the tool into the line around the filter neck at one end. You'll then be able to separate it from the filter. Repeat on other end. You may have to wiggle and twist a bit, as the filter necks might be sticking to the o-ring seal in the connector. Don't force it, as you can damage the connection, and you'll then be purchasing new fuel lines. Most of these filters are retained in a bracket on the frame rail using a big hose clamp. Naturally you'll have to loosen that to pry out and remove the filter. Aside from the initial fuel spillage, and any fuel that might drain down through the lines, the fuel in the tank will remain in the tank. Typically the filter is mounted well above the tank where the pickup tube is located, so siphoning won't be an issue.
I hope this helps

there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

You can't! For a whole not most vehicles, except trucks with exposed fuel tanks, have safety meshes or springs in the filler pipe to prevent fuel theft. The only way to get fuel out of a tank is to break into the fuel supply line near the tank at a joint and draw fuel from that point. This may not work either if the fuel pump is mounted in the tank and it does not allow for a free flow, The last option is the rubber connection between the filler pipe and the fuel tank, This is usually in a very awkward position so good luck.
