If your replacing the fuel pump, you don't need to drain it. You access the pump from under the back seat. There's no drain. Once you get the pump out, you can siphon it out. Have plenty of rags handy taking out the pump. You will spill some gas.

I want to syphon gas out of a 2005 kia rio


if the car is headed to the salvage yard anyway..if you have a drain pan thats clean or some gallon jugs that are clean, do this carefully..raise the back of the car up enough to get to the tank and have room(and help)to switch out bottles as necesary..just using a hammer and a screwdriver or b ig nail with a sharp point.. poke a hole in the tank and drain the fuel out into the bottles our drain pan..BUT..NO SMOKING...NO OPEN FLAME..NO LIGHTERS etc..this gas is very explosive and should be handled as little as posible..autozone and walmart carry an oil drainpan that sits flatways and has a drainspout on it and it holds about 6 gallons of fluid..consider using something similar before putting a hole in the tank..once the hole is made during the draining process, when needing to stop the flow to change bottles..just use your finger to plug the hole..gas liquid does not harm too much and can be removed with handsoap..the smell is a bit strong tho..it will go away after some time..just be very careful and remember this is usually NOT recommended to do..gas theives do this same thing using a portable batterypowered drill in the city.. my bosses van has a plastic fuel tank on it that hols 38 gallons of gas,, its been hit 3 times in one year...

What is the make of your wagon? Regardless you shouldn't be drilling holes anywhere. Check your rear window seal, tailgate or lift gate seals.

We have a 1997 chevy lumina that has been sitting for over a year. New battery, new fuel filter and air filter, but still won't start. Any ideas?


It is probably bad gas. I guarantee it. If it started when you put it there, bad gas. You will have to drain the gas out by tanking the tank off or by going through the float hole. If you have a question, please let me know. I am here to help you. Thank you for choosing FixYa.

Fuel tank leaking how to solve problem gas is not pouring out but is seeping through bottom of tank There is fuel leaking from the top of the tank, is it a fuel overflow release or is the seal on the fuel...


If your gas tank is cracked or has a hole in it, you have to drain the tank, remove the gas tank and replace it, or have it repaired (if possible). If the gas tank is just leaking from the top and dripping along the side and to the bottom, you will still have to empty the gas tank, and remove it to get a good look at the condition of the gasket. It is not uncommon for these gaskets to become cracked or fragile over time because of the harsh chemicals and cleaning agents used in unleaded gas. If you do decide to have the gas tank removed, I would recommend replacing the fuel pump and fuel filter if your car has high mileage. Please rate this response if you found this helpful.

I have accidentally refuelled a diesel Volvo V50 R design with unleaded any idea where the fuel sump is so I can drain Cheers


You have to drain the fuel tank and disconnect fuel lines and blow out with compressed air. The fuel pump is in the tank take it out and spray down with WD-40. If you run the car with unlead gas it will damage the motor.

How to get gas out of a 1995 dodge?


If the point you disconnect the pipe from the motor is higher than the top of the gas tank you will not have a leak.
If you still want to drain the tank, you can get a hand siphon pump from a hardware or big box store and use it to siphon the gas out through the gas tank inlet. Drain into a certified gas can. No smoking.
