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..

SOURCE: How to change fuel filter on 1996 Ford Bronco, 5.8 l engine

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

SOURCE: how can you drain gas or syphon gas out of the gas

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.

How do i drain my 98 mercury mountaineer gas tank? I accidentally put diesel fuel in n now it wont start!

You're gonna have to drop the fuel tank to dump it. Also, you're gonna want to change the fuel filter and flush out your fuel lines when done. You may still have to replace some of the upstream parts (fuel pressure regulator, 1 or more injectors, various seals).

Need to know the torque value of hub axle nut on 1996 mercury mistique..

It is very smart of you to want to torque the axle nut, the number one cause of wheel bearing failure is due to improper nut tighening. a lot of techs just use an impact gun to tighten the nut and that is very bad,Anyway the torque specs are to tighten to 214 ftlbs. god day

Petrol tank

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.

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).
