Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

You could burn up your pump trying to suck it all out with that. Once the tank gets to the bottom the pump can overheat.

Your best bet is to unhook the filler neck at the tank then you can siphon it. The antisiphon is in the neck so this will bypass it.

I do not have removal instructions on it. If you want I can opt out and see if someone else does.
