A lot of vehicles have a ball inside of the filler tube. to prevent people from helping there self to free fuel. lol, Good-Day! if the tank is off of vehicle, you can remove the plastic ball. on newer vehicles. modern cars have a anti-siphon device in stalled in filler neck.

How to drain my 2006 Dodge Durango fuel tank


If the pump will still run, you can open a fuel line, maybe use hose on line to aim down into a container and drain that way. Don't take any lines loose unless your sure no pressure on the system. Sometimes you can get under vehicle remove fill hose from gas tank, then use a siphon hose in the gas tank. Your local auto store probably has a plastic siphon hose, that has a squeeze bulb on it to create a siphon, so you don't have to use your mouth. I don't know if that will reach down the fill tube? In my younger years, they called a siphon hose an okla credit card. I'm almost 70 now, don't like getting gas in my mouth.lol

What is the best way to get old gas out of a 1999 Pontiac grand Prix GT 3.8 liter v6


Curtis, Not an easy task to siphon out of GM's, may have to take the filler tube off to get a siphon hose to go past the back flow ball found in a lot of GM's. There are other ways, just be very careful as gas is very flammable and can be dangerous. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

Can u easily siphon gas from a 98 montana? We cant get the rear bolt off thermostat housing to change the thermostat and just filled the tank


Cars and trucks manufactured since the late 70's have anti-siphoning screens at the bottom of the fill tube to the tank. So, sorry to say, no you can't siphon this new gas. I can truly commiserate with you as it's happened more than once. I've just filled my tank and the vehicle bites the big one. The only way to get to that gas is to drop the tank.

Most cars have an anti siphoning device in the filler tube that resembles a screen so you can't put a tube down to be able to siphon gas out of the tank.

Can't put fuel in tank


The fuel tank fill tube or fill tube vent pipe for the fuel tank is either clogged with something or the anti-siphon feature (what stops people from stealing your gas) is fouled up. The tank and fill tube have to be inspected.

I put five gallons of desil in my tank how do i locate and disconnect fuel line from fuel injector to drain/


You can disconect the fuel line under the vehicle at the fuel filter but your best option is to syphon the gas tank and get as much diesel out as possible. Then fill it up with gasoline. Having a little diesel in a gas system will not hurt anything.
