Siphoning gas from 1996 Camry

My 1996 camry has broken down and cannot be driven anymore and the car still has 3/4 tank full of gas. I bought a gas siphoning kit with a pump and 6 ft of tubing. I stick the tubing down into the gas tank but it never reaches the gas. Is there a diagram of where the gas tank is located on a 1996 camry? Thanks in advance.

Well, if you can never drive the car again... you could always drill a hole and hope no sparks fly.
Is the tube possibly kinking in the tube leading to the gas tank? If not, just buy some more tubing.

I dont think it is, i straightened the tube out before i stuffed it in there. i thought 6 ft would be more than enough to get to the gas tank.

I sure wish I remembered where the gas tank is on my 93.
I think it's on the passenger side of the car just a bit closer to the rear. If so, then six feet probably isn't enough. Get a few more feet and you'll be fine.

just a really old car, transmission crapped out and didnt find it worthy enough to keep around. had 220000 miles on it and decided it was time to let it die. since then i've gotten a 1993 mercedes 190E, and am now trying to siphon the remaining gas from the car into my 190E.

On a '96,The tank is under the rear seat. Pull out the seat and the fuel pump is right there. Just take the pump out and there you go.

You can get the seat out by just pulling up on it. Its clipped in. Becareful putting it back in though.

Yeah, why let some perfectly good gas go to waste? After all, in time that gas tank could leak and let gas into the drinking water.
But seriously... shit happens.

I would say more to the right. I've never crawled under the car,just looked at it from above.

Ain't that the truth.

I didn't know the seats were clipped in. Is it that way on all gen3's or just the 3.5s? I should try this.
