It's been sitting up a long time just got it and want to get the old gas out of it.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '04 Ford?

Yes I'm trying to empty the fuel tank of old gas. I don't want to run the old gas and water through my fuel pump.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No I tried to get it out but can't seem to get the clearance I need to get it out the wheel well.

Hello, my name is***** and thanks for your question.

The inner bucket has 4 bolts to remove also. Sometimes it is necessary to loosen the fuel tank straps (do not remove the bolts all the way) to shift the tank slightly for extra clearance. Feel free to review the shop manual instructions at the link below.

Rating my answer positive charges your account the full question value and credits me.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
