Old gas in grand Marquis

Hello all....

Looking for suggestions on how to remove about 10 gallons of one year old gas from 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis gas tank without having to physically drop the tank....

Thru filler spout?

Other points in fuel system?

Would appreciate any and all suggestions, comments, tips, etc

Thanks in advance...

I would try to siphon it out through the filler spout. It will be impossible to get it all without removing the tank, but you can get most of it.

Thanks for reply...

I am under the impression that they installed some type of plate or other device down in the filler spout that would prevent peeps from stealing your gas? is this not the case?

You may be right. There should be a rubber hose connecting the filler neck to the tank. You may have to disconnect that hose and go in that way.
