  1. An alternative way of making your bad gas good enough to burn properly would be to fill your tank up with a higher octane gas. You may need to fuel up 2 or 3 times with high octane gas using this method of dilution, before the mission is totally accomplished. change fuel filter after old fuel is out of system.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

HOW DO I FIX THE CAR AFTER WATER WAS THROWN INTO THE FUEL TANK?


have to remove the gas/water in that is in the tank by removing the tank so you can turn it upside down and make sure every drop of the gas/water is out of the tank siphoning it out may leave some old gas/water in the bottom of tank then get rid of it let the tank dry out for a day and reattach it, then refill your tank with gas it may screw up for a little bit until the gas/water trapped in the fuel line is totally gone.
Go to you tube and look up "removing gas tank"

More than likely you have picked up a tank of bad gas. Best way to get rid of it is to burn it off.

Add a bottle of methyl hydrate to the tank to help pass some of the water through the system and it should clear up in another tank or two.

2005pontiac grand prix with water in the gas tank


Your best bet is to drop the tank and then dump out the water. Dropping the tank isn't that big of deal. Remove the filler hose and a couple vacuum hoses. Unplug the main fue pump harness. Remove the fuel lines. Support the tank with an appropriate jack. Remove the straps and drop the tank.

fill the tank with new fuel,, and add a can of heet, or other water removing chemical, ( at any parts store) you may have to do this with each fill up for a while depending on how much water was put into the tank,, if you believe it was a gallon or more, this would be a long process, if thats the case, you can either run the fuel out, by attaching a length of hose to the fuel supply hose to the motor, and turning the key to the "on " position,, letting the pump remove the fuel, or drop the tank, remove the pump from the tank, and turning it over,

you can't syphon the gas out on these vehicles. They have a ball that is in the metal hose on the gas tank to keep any large object out of the tank. Your best bet would be to drop the tank, and take the fuel pump out and dump all the old fuel. Hope this helps, James Booth

Too bad GM doesnt provide a cover to access tank without dropping the tank. I would think creating this "hole" would be quite the endeavor and done correctly would add quite the additional time and expense. Decline cutting holes and drop the tank in order to service the pump/sender. Any reputable repair firm should or would never recomend this measure in order to access the pump in the fuel tank I would hope....

1999 Taurus has been sitting 4 years, bad gas clogged fuel filter


1.) Change the fuel filter.
2.) remove all old gas (should actually drop the tank)
3.) run injector cleaner get kit to do this from fuel rail as this is probably cover in gunk


You may also have a screen or filter in the gas tank itself that can get clogged. Get rid of as much bad gas as possible. Like I said above it is recommended that you drop your gas tank but if you don't want to make sure to get all old gas out of tank and at the very least put a good amount of stabil in the tank fill with gas do the fuel rail injector cleaner they sell these kits at auto part stores. Hope for the best.

Let me know how it goes.

Contaminated fuel


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
