2 gallons is too much to top it off with regular gas and run it

you need to pick up a battery operated siphon pump from your local parts stores and remove the hose from the filler next to the tank OR run the small hose it comes with down into the tank and suck out all the fuel as best you can then fill it up with fuel and it should be fine after that

Where is that located
GM Mechanic: Gary, GMC Technician replied 8 months ago

the rubber hose that connects to the tank from the fuel neck on the side of the tank

OR you can remove the line at the fuel filter from the tank drivers side under of the frame near the drivers door area then put a big bucket under the line and remove the fuel pump relay in the under hood fuse box and jump terminals 30 to 87 in the box that match that relays numbers on the side of it and that will run the intank f**k pump and pump all the fuel out into the bucket
