Question about 1988 Chevrolet Camaro
Need to empty fuel tank
Not an easy task. You need to remove and disconnect the tank. Depending on how old the gas (more than 1-2 years) is it may be cheaper to replace the tank than trying to clean out the old gas residue which will repeatedly plug your lines and filters. After you remove the tank dump the gas into approved containers then dispose or properly. Check with your city or county officials they should be able to tell you where to dispose of toxic waste.

There is a sending unit in the fuel tank that registers how much fuel there is. It is probably broken, giving you a funny reading on your gauge.

SOURCE: Fuel tank won't accept gas
In the 2000 Impala, there is a small filter located in the driver's rear quarter panel that is supposed to permit some air to move to adn from the fuel tank to account for expansion and contraction of the fuel, and provide a path for the displaced air while fueling. When this filter gets clogged, the air cannot vacate the tank during fueling, and the pressure causes the pump to click off.
To find it, underneath the vehicle, trace a hose from the top of the tank to the space on the driver's side behind the rear wheel. It will be a small plastic black box about 1" x 3' x 3'. Carefully remove, and open it, and the filter may be replaced or cleaned depending on your budget.
I have seen this on an Impala and a Cavalier, the part is identical.

Repair is a major job involving dropping the fuel tank, a messy and dirty and dangerous job. It will take you at least one full Saturday to do this job if everything goes right and you have the proper parts. My free advice to you is to fill your tank every 200 miles and forget about the fuel gauge.
