Default Draining fuel

What is the best way to drain the fuel out.
A lot of people say to disconnect the return line and let it run out at idle.

However I have my motor out of the car and I'm guessing it will be awhile until I fire it back up.
There is about 3/4 of e85 I'm my tank...what a waste

Shoot the gas tank with a blunderbuss. There are 97 ways to do this, all equally the same level of pain in the ass.

Just extend the feed line into a gas can and jump power to the fuel pump

You can just put Sta-Bil in the tank (yes it works with E85) if you're worried about it going "bad".

I am in the same boat as you I have a full tank of gas but an empty engine bay. Jumping the fuel pump will only pump out one side of the tank, the returning fuel causes a siphon to draw from the other side of the tank. Now I am speaking of a 2010 forester, but I think the fuel systems are similar. If you are going to try to use the pump to drain the tank you will need to create a loop so that you can pump some fuel back into the return line. What I am doing is to pump what I can from the tank, connect a hose from the feed to the return, let the pump run for a while to level the two sumps out, then pump the fuel into a gas can and repeat. I know this is not the most efficient way to do this, but I didn't see any drains on the tank (I didn't really look too well).

Good luck
