How to drain gas tank ?

I have about 3/4 tank full.

Car has blown head gasket.

I'd like to drain the gas before sending the car off.

What's the best way to get the gas out ?

Something along these lines would do the trick.

You can break open the fuel line, attach a hose, and use the fuel pump to get it out. Another way is to stab the fuel tank.

Under the back seat should be something where you would be able to scife the gasoline out

I prolly wouldn't try stabbing the fuel tank as a spark would be disastrous.
