Quickest way to emptey fuel tank?
What is the quickest and easiest way to remove all the fuel from my RXPX? It was running real lousey, so I pulled it out of the water and low an behold, my kids had not put the gas cap on, they never even effing told me it was running terrible. I hop on it since its about 100* and it runs like crap, and barely would start. I figure its about 5 gallons of gas with about 3 gallons of water

I stuck a 1/4" fuel line hose I had laying around and siphoned it out... took forever and the 3/8 wouldnt fit.

pull the glove box, unclip the harness, vent hose, and fuel line, remove tank sending unit and put whatever size hose you'd like in there

IDK if you have them or any similar cheapo tool supply but I got a manual hand pump for like 13 dollars from Harbor Freight for bikes and stuff... It doesn't take too long.

I took the fuel filler hose off at the tank, put a piece of garden hose in there and syphoned it out, took like 5 min to get 30ltrs out.
You will need to get real low down beside the ski to get it to flow as the bottom of the tank is nearly as low as the bottom of the ski.

no no..... take hose off fuel line.... put hose in bucket and keep reattaching the key it will kick start the fuel line and suck all the water straight from the bottom of the tank!! Best way to get EVERYTHING OUT. Good luck!

If you have a fluid extractor just stick the tube down in there and suck it all out.

i removed the filler and put a hose right to the bottom of the tank you can get every last drop.
ps. didn't your son trash a prop and ring on you a wile back? man i would ground them from the ski
