emptying fuel tank 300x
Just recieved my 300x from the states. The fuel tank was 3/4 full. The gas is over one year old so would like to remove it.
Has anyone any experince with emptying the fuel tank. Is it possible to go down with a hose by the fuel cap?

I use a hand pump to get old fuel out.
With fresh fuel add a double dose of Injector cleaner in the 1st few tanks of fuel to help clean out the fuel system.

I disconnect the fuel line from the injector rack and let the fuel pump do most of the work. After that pull the fuel pump and use a Floyd extractor to suck out the rest. I then put a towel for any remaining amount.

I know with the STX series it was simple to pull the fuel pump, but how do you remove it on the 300/LX platform? Looks like there is a lot of plastic to get out of the way first..

12 - 10mm bolts/nuts
3 for each side plastic and 3 on each side of the black "console." Turn it sideways and remove the black cover that will probably come up with the console. That hole the pump is in is large enough to get your arm in some. There is a round indention where the pump sits in the bottom I the tank. You can get all the fuel into there for easy removal of remaining fuel. Not hard just a little time consuming. It is worth doing to know no water or bad gas remains in the tank.
