You can't siphon from car to car you will need a container, make sure that when you are sucking if you are using your mouth which is not advisable that you are in a position that is lower than a tank otherwise it wont work.

How to empty fuel from generator tank

To empty gasoline tanks that have no drain I get a length of plastic hose and syphon it out into a gas can. To syphon I stick one end of the hose into the bottom of the tank and suck the gas with my mouth just so the gas is only two thirds up the hose and make sure you put the part you sucked on goes lower than your full tank. Make sure you do Not get gas in your mouth. That works almost all the time for me.

Accidently put about a gallon of diesel in my tank

I would just keep topping off the fuel tank,IF you only
put in ONE gallon of diesel

Not good advice, but it is better than trying to empty the tank,
either by syphon or removal of the tank, just for that problem

Need to know how to syphon gas out of my1993 Mitsubishi Diamante and hose gets stopped by something before reaching the gas tank. Bad gas was put in my car when the power went out due to tornados here in...

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

Filled tank accidently with diesel

No problem!!! Just syphon the tank and refill with gas. try to get as much diesel out as possible, obviously, but a quart or two mixed with the gas won't hurt, as a matter of fact it will act like a fuel system cleaner and lubricator. Beyond two quarts to 16 gallon tank and some egr system damage could occur.

My volkswagen passat 2003 fuel indicator on the dashboard does not rise and i want a solution for it.

This is your a sending unit in your gas tank.You will need to drive your car on ramps disconnect your battery.Now underneath the back rear of the car using the proper size socket your gas filler neck that goes to the gas tank pull it back.Now using a proper syphon er insert into tank with other end pump out fuel into a large gas can.Once you have syphoned out your gas it is time to loosen the gas tank straps.Have a hydraulic jack handy to support the gas tank as you lower it down.Now disconnect your gas lines and wire harness plug.You will need to remove the fuel pump sending unit retainer once removed you now have the sending unit in hand now reinstall your new or used unit and reinstall.Be sure to make sure all gas lines are connected and wires before you lower car of ramps.Return your fuel to your gas tank reconnect battery and now inspect for leaks and you should have a fuel gage now.

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.
