Siphon....Recommend approved gas cans and a nice long siphon hose. I've only owned one car with a drain plug in the gas tank and that was a Honda.


Thanks ytlas, I tried that and the siphon hose was blocked by some thing and could not get into the tank.


Sometimes you have to just work the hose in the tank, maybe rotate it. I have one hose that's about 1/4" ID and it's worked every time, just takes a very long time.... long time

Thanks ytlas I'll give it a try again.
