[Mgs] Siphoning Gas

Hi Dan,


Because of a defective fuel pump to be removed, I had to pump out most of the tank content.

I used a small motorbike fuel pump and got that into one of our cars.

This pump has a 3 feet tube for inside the tank thru the normal filling pipe.

I you want to drain the tank fully, check if there is a drain plug at the underside of the tank.

That can be used for the last part.

Hope this helps.

Hi all.... My '76B, which was off the road for 5 years, was recently returned to me from the shop. They added some new gas but did not siphon out the 5 year old gas (which was just under 1/2 tank when I had it towed in. The car is running pretty rough so I want to siphon out most of the gas before I fill it up. It is currently showing as just under 1/2 tank, so around 6 gallons or a little less (assuming gauge accuracy). 


I was able to pump out about 2 gallons but am wondering if the interior of the tank is baffled, as I can't seem to move the hose beyond a certain area and it's not sucking up any additional gas. Would really like to remove a couple more gallons before I fill it up.
