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

Why cant i syphon gas out of 07' mitsubishi galant? Does this year and model have an anti-syphon ball?


Where are you siphoning it from? Under tank or from tank mouth? Under, not siphoning, it is clogged. From mouth, keep sucking hose til gas propel from it.

Bad gauge. Most likely from trying to syphone gas and the syphone hose bent the float rod.

The tank is almost full, but no matter how i put the hose in I can't get it to go down far enough to syphon the gas out


Hi, there are baffles in the filler pipe designed to prevent siphoning. If you need to drain the tank, I would disconnect the filter and use the fuel pump to drain it.

I need to drain gas out of my tank, my daughter put diesel in by mistake, how can i do it? this vehicle has an anti-syphon ball in the tank.


I would try disconnecting the filler hose and see if you can bypass the anti siphon ball by siphoning out of the tank it's self. Most of the time there is a a rubber hose that goes from the filler to the tank its self. If that does not work you may need to remove the gas tank and drain it.

Trying to syphon gas from a 2000 toyota camry and can't get the hose into the gas tank it hits something and won't go in far enough to get to the gas


There is a safety block in there that doesn't aloow them to be syphoned. Sorry to tell you. If you are needing to get the gas out then you will have to drop the tank. It sucks cause it is alot of work but that is the only way it can be done.

I have a 2003 sante fe that has died with a full gas tank. I have tried syphoning the gas out but it appears there is something blocking the syphon hose from going all the way into the tank. any...


there is a roll over ball blocking you if your vehicle was to roll over there is a ball that will close off filler neck trapping fuel for safety purposes under vehicle follow the filler neck down to tank beside the big filler neck hose should be a smaller hose remove that hose from tank and insert your syphon hose there this should work for you i assume you have determined that the uel pump is your problem and are trying to access the pump??

Change the fuel pump 1997 chevy fuel pump


the fuel pump resides within the gas tank and removal of the tank itself is required to reach it ...you will need some tools and a jack a 2x4 gas cans a syphon hose to syphon off most of the gas to make it easier a chisel a hammer a jack and jack stand for safety reasons and a bit of patience and mechanical ability /1st i would disconnect the battery + for safety syphon off as much gas as possible , raise the vehicle and use jack stand remove the drivers rear tire , use penetrating oil on the 2 bolts/nuts to the tank disconnect either the filler neck or at the hose and filler pipe but be careful not to allow dirt to get into the tank , loosen the 2 nuts /bolts and get the jack and 2x4 under the tank and remove the 2 nuts./bolts keeping the tank up by jack remove out the way the 2 straps and begin to lower the tank ..1/2 way down reach in and disconnect the power as well as the lines into the tank to allow you to getthe tank down without breaking the lines going in {this may be the hard part just a note }
once the lines are disconnected lower the tank and watch the filler neck while doing so ,once the tank is on the ground bring it out from under the vehicle and remove the retaining clip with the chisel counterclockwise to remove it careful not to bend or disturb the float the pump is now visable as well as the filter to it remove and replace it the way you removed it .........replacing it is the exact reversal of the procedure
