most gas tanks don't have a drain plug.can eith try siphoning it out with a hose called a magic siphoning hose or disconnect the fuel line and put the line in a container to catch the bad gas.
other option is to drop the fuel tank and empty

the easiest way to do this would be to remove the fuel filter and turn the key on the fuel pump will pump it all out for you. you may have to cycle the key a few times as it will only run for a little while at a time usually about 30 seconds per cycle

THERE is 2 ways to do it 1 take the tank out and drain it OR get a small 12volt pump as they fitted to a lot of English cars (Morris Minor Jag ) etc and fit a small fuel pipe 3/16" to both in let and out let and put the one with arrow to tank into tank and other end to a fuel drum (about same size as tank)and plug into 12v battery and let tank pump dry,
When you refill tank with Diesel add 1 ltr of petrol to full tank of Diesel it starts and runs 30% better.
If your dad tried to start it on petrol then undo INJECTOR pipes and spin over till Diesel comes out before you tighten injectors feed and starting engine.

Testimonial: "Quite helpful, think we might take the tank completly out, but whats the easiest way?"
do not worry about draining it, pour about 6 to 8 ounces of engine oil in it, and top it up with fresh fuel, it will be fine. The only way to drain the tank is to remove it and turn it over.
