My son filled up my 7.3 diesel with gas.I know what to do, but I need to drain the tank.I have a pump but cannot get a hose into the tank.I assume there is a baffle. How can I bypass it. Tank is too heavy to drop down.
Thanks

Remove fuel filter inlet pipe/hose from fuel filter find/buy a piece of hose to fit into fuel filter feed pipe from tank and use your pump to drain tank through filter inlet pipe/hose into containers. Some internal fuel tank pumps have a check valve inside. If your extra pump will not suck the fuel out you will have to drain by cycling the key switch on/off. May take all day but will drain the tank enough to let you drop it out
