How to drain fuel tank

I guess this is a newb question but can you drain the fuel tank on a ford fiesta 1.8 lx diesel 1993 (UK) without removing the tank?

There doesn't seem to be a plug or anything as far as i can see.

thanks.

Re: How to drain fuel tank

just use a peice of hose to syphon it out. once youve got the pressure up in the hose run it into a jerry can BELOW the fuel tank and let it sit there till its drained.
