You can do it- just use a pump and not your mouth- (the way we used to do it in the 20th century- back when all you got was lead in the blood, not Benzine)- the best way to do it is pull the tank and clean it- but if it has only been two years, the gas shouldn't be dirty, just degraded- it should just burn, and you can add more to it- but, like I said, the best thing to do is pull the tank and clean it- a 25 year old car needs it anyways-
