    Unhappy How to remove/drain fuel on 2003 GTX

    Has anyone ever pumped/ removed fuel from 2003 + seadoo Gtx?? I'm having a difficult time trying to get the hose to go down into the fuel tank by way of fuel cap. It works flawlessly on my 2001 but obviously the fuel tubes are fashioned differently. Very curvy on the '03 which makes it difficult for the siphon tube to travel down. Need to remove fuel because too much stabilizer mixed with the gas.

    Any thoughts?

    Remove the fill hose from the top of the gas tank and stick the siphon tube in.

    pull the fuel module if you don't want to take off 1 clamp and a rubber hose.

    Once you crack the hose loose it will come off easy I use a minimal spray of brake cleaner to help when re installing the hose.

    Try a little lube like WD40 on the siphon hose to help it slide around the corners.

    The real question is if this is even necessary at all? How much stabilizer did you add? Normally, too much will not hurt within reason. I would run the ski and add a gas after a while of running to dilute.

    Super easy, just loosen the two clamps on fuel fill hose, grab it and twist until you break the hose loose and then remove it. Then super easy to siphon out the gas.
