Is there a drain plug at the bottom of the gas tank? If there isn't, your other option(which wouldn't be fun at all) would be to drop the tank if the siphon isn't working.

Id think if siphoning isnt working you would have to take out the tank and dump it by hand...


But I wouldnt think the civic would have an anti siphon situation on it.

Find the fuel line that feeds the rail

Unhook it. Run it into a bucket/whatever. You may need some hose to extend it.

Turn ignition on. If its like most cars the pump will come on, and pump all the gas out of the line, into the bucket/whatever.

Many cars need a little special tool to disconnect the fuel lines from either the fuel rail, fuel filters, and/or pumps. One might rig something up to get them off.... I've not been very successful without the proper fuel key release gadget.

Also might disconnect the fuel filler at the opening into the tank. Much shorter run to the tank itself allowing hose to reach in for siphon.

Good luck ----->

95 civic should just have a bolt on line for the fuel filter.... if i remember correctly. unbolt it and turn the key on. do you plan on emptying the whole tank?? you kind of take the risk of burning the fuel pump up if you run it till empty. at least on some cars its that way since there is no gas in there to cool the pump.

thanks - I was going to try something like this

My dad only has about 5 gallons of fuel left.

Getting fuel isn't easy right now.

I went this morning about 5:45am and it took me about 10 minutes. You need to try to go early early...

Our Wal-Mart is restocking their food too and isn't very packed.
