I need to remove the gas tank , to fix a leak in a steel brake line , but the tank is full of gas , and you cant siphon through the filler , because there is a blockage in the filler .neck ,this is on a 97 Mazda Protege how do I remove the gas.
you're going to have to buy a five foot piece of fuel line disconnect the fuel line hooked up use your new hose Where you took the fuel hose off and siphon it that way
I was able to siphon 8 gals out , but that was all .
well its about 56 pounds lighter now,it should be close to empty your fuel tank is about 14 and a half gallons use a floor jack embrace it while you take out the bolts and slowly lower the floor jack to get it out even if there is 5 gallons of gas in there. it should only weigh about 45-50 pounds they should be pretty easy to handle once you get it out I'm sure you got it from there if not im here
