Get a hose and siphon out until empty, diesels can run if you have a little gas in it but too much is not a good thing obviously.

SOURCE: draining fuel tank

You need to use a small garden hose and keep twisting it an it will go. The problem is there are baffels in the tank that you got to get around use a little patence and it will go, the smaller the hose the better. If you still can't get it you may have to for go getting the gas out and try to balance it on a floor jack. If you elect to do it that way get some help as it will be heavy and ackward.

SOURCE: how to drain a gas tank in a 95 honda prelude

I woulldn't worry about that fuel too much. Let me know if you have done anything to the motor, i.e., cleaned the spark plugs, checked the oil, water/radiator fluid level...corrosion on the battery. What does it sound like when you try to start it?

They make products to add to the gas...fuel stabilizer for example.

SOURCE: Where is the fuel filter in a Volvo S40 2005

Yes that is correct. The only filter is inside the fuel tank, and as I recall its a non exchangeable filter. It just gets replaced with the fuel pump when it goes bad

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

I need to drain the gas tank to fill with premium gas & drive for 50 miles to reset the emissions computer.

there is an anti siphon device in the tube
There is no need to empty the gas tank at all ( unless diesel has been added wrongly) because the computer in the ECM continually checks the tune up of the engine (60 times a second)
just add the new fuel and the computer will keep adjusting the tuning of the motor accordingly up to and past when all there is is new fuel in the tank
emissions are continually being monitored and the engine settings are continually being reset to stay with in the preset parameters of the program in the ECM

Draining fuel tank

the FSM book covers this. (ill do the full tank pull... as you never said the JOB!)
its siphoned to near empty. (use a hand pump for fuel , sold at all boat center)
do you need the FSM page quotes?
on some cars there is an anti-spill roll over check valve
at tank fill port making siphoning very hard.
my answers are USA cars, on this USA forum.... and swifts vary big time world wide..... dig?

quoted. (no smoking no open flames, outdoors best. no shop heaters of ANY KIND near)
"tank pull steps. (sure drained)
  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.
  2. Relieve the pressure from the fuel system. (in the FSM)
  3. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  4. Remove rear seat cushion.
  5. Disconnect connectors of fuel tank wire harness.
  6. Hoist vehicle.
  7. Disconnect fuel tank filler hose and breather hose from filler neck.
  8. As fuel tank has no drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler or fuel tank inlet. Use hand operated pump to drain fuel tank.
    1. Disconnect fuel pipe joints and fuel hose from pipes. For quick joint, disconnect it as follows:
      • Remove mud, dust and/or foreign material between pipe and joint by blowing compressed air.
      • Unlock joint lock by inserting special tool (part No. 09919-47020) between pipe and joint.
      • Disconnect joint from pipe.

Have water in fuel Suzuki xl7 how do I drain the tank

no year, huh? some years have a check valve , there,....
this forum is for usa cars, is car USA car?
the tanks just dont like siphoning. (check valve)
the FSM covers this , in the fuel section under bad pump.
1998 to 2006, ill guess, 06

i have the FSM and does not cover. bad fuel, no drain plug.

it shows how to get fuel lower, in filler neck
the tank has check valve at it its metal neck.
so inserting a hose in filler, will hit this check valve.
and all you get out , is 1/2 fuel.
id use the tank out procedure.
then empty all fuel, after step 5.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Relieve fuel pressure in fuel feed line.
  3. Due to absence of fuel tank drain plug, drain fuel tank by pumping fuel out through fuel tank filler.
  4. Use hand operated pump device to drain fuel tank.
  5. Remove fuel tank.

tip tank to drain the remainder. out

here is one more way. (IDEA!)
do 1-4
then tip car to left. Jacks then stands at frame.
then remove the filler hose on tank
remove that pesky check valve. from neck last.

and pump out the rest.
