    How do you drain gas

    I am needing to drain my gas tank on my RXP. I dont have a siphon pump. Is there any way to use the electric fuel pump to pump into a jug? Thanks for the help!

    That will work i think. I usually put the hose in the tank, get the air compressor and add air to the tank while holding a rag over the hose that fills the tank. The gas will follow the path of least resistance and it will start to flow then you can stop adding air to the tank. Just have a big enough gas can on the other end

    I usualy drain my gas by running itat WOT for about 90 minutes.

    When that doesnt work I use the $4 syphon pump from walmart.

    They sell this gas line thing at Wal-Mart. It has a check valve thingy with a marbel in the one end. Put it into the gas tank and shake it up and down for 190 seconds. Gas starts flowing out.
