Many cars have a drain cock to let you drain the fuel tank easily. If you do not see a drain cock on your fuel tank, you will need to remove one of the fuel lines. To do this, locate the rubber hose coming out of the tank at its lowest point. Loosen the clamp on the side of the hose that connects to the fuel tank. Pull out the hose and let the fuel run out into your container.
