Hi Dan,
   You can let the SU pump do most of the job.   As it is cooled by the fuel pumping through it, it will not overheat. Plus, it gives you a test of its future reliability.
   There is, or should be, a baffle in there. Free surface liquid can result in a noticeable shift of weight.

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).
