How to remove gas from 84 fiero?
How do I remove fuel from the tank of an
84 fiero se without dropping the tank? I've
heard about connecting a hose near the
fuel pump, and I've also heard siphoning,
but i can't get a hose deep enough in the
car to have it in liquid. The gas is 10 years
old with a little bit of new gas and it ALL
needs to come out. Thanks!
Pull the tank and have it flushed and inspected for rust, any fuel in there will be varnished and you won't get it out without removing the tank. When it comes to fuel don't cut corners to save a few bucks.
What's the best way to clean inside the tank?
Is there any liquids I should put in or what special tools should I use?
If the car has been sitting for 10 years you probably have a big lump of varnish in the gas tank. If you can find a new old stock (NOS) tank or a good used one you'd probably be better off replacing the gas tank. You can try having the current one cleaned. Either way the tank is going to have to come out. HTH. -Jim
