Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi
I have a 1975 vw beetle, I filled the
wrong fuel in it, now its not starting.
How do I go about emptying the fuel
tank without removing it, Is there a
cock to drain the petrol out from? If
there is please explain to me we're to
find it cause I can't seem to find it.

Siphon it out, get as much as you can, add some fuel stablizer then fill tank with good fuel, you may have to flush the fuel line and carb to get to run.
