There are anti-theft devices installed in the fuel filler pipes, so you cannot put a pipe in there to extract any fuel. Depending on the design and location of the fuel pump, you may be able to **** fuel out of the fuel feed pipe to the engine. Otherwise you will have to remove one of the rubber couplings between the fuel tank and the filler pipe and insert a pipe in there. None of these places are readily accessible, so expect a bit of a tough job.

How do I syphon the gas from a 1999 plymouth grand voyager?

Forget trying to syphon via the filler cap as most now have anti-syphon built in. Try breaking into the fuel line before it enters the engine and let the fuel pump do the work. On my old car (a 2002 Fiat) the line was just a push-fit connection. I disconnected and fitted a hose over the line to a container. I turned on the ignition and the pump switched on and started filling the container. It did, however, need switching on and off a few times because I believe there is some kind of pressure switch within the system and the pump stopped once it realised the pressure to the fuel injection system was not building up.

How do you drain the fuel from a 2002 Oldsmobile Alero if the hose won't go all the way down into the tank

A syphon hose is just about the only way, and if the hose will not go to the bottom of the tank, you can't get the remaining gas out until the tank is removed.

Need to syphon gas from 2002 dodge care van how to do it

You can't siphon gas, there is a ball valve that blocks that from happening. Use the fuel pump to pump the gas out, but don't pump it completely dray or it may damage the electric pump due to heat and friction.

Need to get gas out of 2002 dodge care van

If there are no restrictions or baffles in the filler pipe, most people use a syphon pump such as you would use for a boat fuel tank.

Our hyundi excel is beyond repair. And we are trying to empty fuel tank to scrap car but syphon pipe wont go down ? Is there a way to empty fuel How can we ge the syphon in?

If you are just scrapping the car as a whole, take a screw driver and a hammer to the fuel tank and let it drain in a bucket.

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.

Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve between the filler tube and the gas tank?

Yes, it has a wire mesh type anti syphon device, if you desperately need to syphon fuel from the vehicle it can be pushed through with the hose pipe, but you may risk blocking the fuel outlet if the mesh falls into the tank.
