While that sounds like a logical thing to do, I wonder if the fuel pump would survive continuous pumping as long as it takes to remove 12 gallons or so ?? I kind of doubt it.or remove the fuel line to all the injectors, and keep the key on so it drains all fuel out.
How many gallons and gallons of fuel have you put thru it over the lifespan of the fuel pump? It is constantly running anyway while driving.While that sounds like a logical thing to do, I wonder if the fuel pump would survive continuous pumping as long as it takes to remove 12 gallons or so ?? I kind of doubt it.
Not any that I have ever seen.It is constantly running anyway while driving.
How do you know that.......or even reasonably suspect that it is true ??yes the pump would be fine to drain that fuel,
because the pump on all modern fuel injected cars (accent included) runs at full tilt while the car is running with a bypass back to tank otherwise known as a 'recirc' line for cooling. as long as fuel is going through it, it will be cooled. if the OP watches closely and doesn't run it dry, the pump will be cooled. running it dry removes all coolant (read: gas) and the pump overheats.How do you know that.......or even reasonably suspect that it is true ??
My syfoner came with an adapter and a smaller diameter hose that I attached and was able to then get through to the tank, you may have to improvise and use duct tape to attach a smaller diameter hose, I got mine from Advanced Auto parts for just under 20 bucksHow do I get gas out of my tank?
I filled it up and the tank leaks.
I can't seem to siphon it out. the hose stops for some reason.
Is there a screen in it or something?
Any help would be appreciated.
