Damn man, I wish I had a early model 03 with only 5 miles.

I would think the only way other than putting a flame to it would be to drop the tank. I've never done it, but I don't think dropping the tank is suppose to be all that hard to do.

go buy a siphon (sp?) pump from your local auto parts store, that will get the majority of the gas out, then just refill with fresh 93 octane...no need to drop the tank unless you're replacing the fuel pumps :thumbsup:

I think there is something in the filler tube and you cant get anything in it:(

Yes, it is very hard to get any type of hose into the tanks. Dropping an empty tank is not too hard except for getting the fuel line unattached. With a full tank it will probably be a lot harder. Make sure you have the tank supported or it will come down hard.

What about disconnecting the line from fuel filter and draining from there? Is that even possible? If the pump is before the filter just give the pump power and let it do the work.

some one told me the pump will shut off after a few sec if the car is not running is that true??

It'll take some time and help the car too, what's wrong with just letting it run? Just out of curiosity, is he changing the fuel because of it's age? If you chose to run the fuel through the car change the filters after.
