John Deere X324. I noticed fuel looked strange but not until I had poured too much in. I was gone for two weeks and container was left by barn. I put Restore (gas additive in) and clean fuel but it won't stay running. I want to drain tank and put fresh fuel in.

Hi, the best way is going to be with a siphon pump like this to drain the tank. Then disconnect the outlet line on the pump and turn it over until fresh fuel comes out. I'll post a picture of the pump lines below.
