My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

If your tank does not have a drain on it then you would need to use an electric fuel pump with hoses attached to it to put into the filler neck down inside the tank to pump out the fuel.If it has a drain it will be at the bottom tank area and can be removed to drain the tank.These are usually the only ways to drain the tank.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
