    Siphoning Fuel…

    Siphoning Fuel… if thats how you spell it.....

    Morning boys….

    Me mates vectra went bang last week and is going to scrap it this afternoon, it has nearly £50 worth of super unleaded in it, is there any way of getting it out? As you can’t get a hose in it…… and seems a pain in the asre to just give it away with a tank of fuel...

    Use the fuel pump to pump out the tank into cans.

    put a nail through the bottom of the tank and stick a bucket under it.

    best to have 2 buckets so you can empty one into your car while the other is filling
