I have a 2003 Ford Explorer that I'm getting ready to junk. Unfortunately, it has nearly a full tank of gas that that must be removed. What is a good way to siphon off the gas in the tank? I've tried removing the fill tube to bypass the screen, but it appears that I'm running into problems getting around the check ball.

If you can't do it that way you can disconnect the line and pump into a car or gas can with fuel pump if it's still good. There is a flap for rollover in the tank you might try putting a large scredrive part way in to hld it open then put your siphon hose in.
