    Alternative to Siphon??

    I cannot get anything to siphon out of my gas tank! I have tried 2 different pump siphon's. Is there another way to get the gas out? Is it hard to take off the whole tank?

    Be sure the boat is higher than the tank you're pouring into.
    I use this syphon I gitfrom Randy at Watcon.

    A few pumps and it does the work.

    Right now I am just Sticking the hose in the gas and blowing into it (while covering the hole in the gas tank). Let my thumb off the hose, and out comes fuel! It goes EXTREMELY slow, but nothing else is working and I would like to get the ski in the water today to test it out.

    You need to suck on the hose till it's full and almost in your mouth and then stick it in the container. (Man that sounds bad)
