Exclamation Need To Siphon Gas out of my Totaled Camry


Just totaled my 93 Camry last week. Earlier that day I filled my tank. I bought a siphon pump to transfer gas to my new car I bought but was unable to do so. Anyone know how to get the gas out of the fuel tank ?

ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED !!!!

simple! poke a hole in the tank

i'm totally serious though, the car is totalled anyway. just poke a hole in the tank, and put one of those gas containers underneath it to catch the gas.

Remove the rear seat, remove the fuel pump, and you can also siphon gas from there.

Disconnect the fuel line at the filter and run the line into a container. Jump the fuel pump by connecting the FP and B+ terminals and let it do the job.
