Fuel tank

Does anyone know of a way to drain the fuel tank? I need to drop mine and it has about 25 gallons of fuel in it.

Thanks. All ideas welcome

Other than sticking a hose down the filler neck with a small pump to siphon, I wouldn't have much of a clue. I ran mine down last week and am below a quarter tank so I can to the harpoon mod on my tank.

Thanks, I tried but there is I screen in the filler neck to stop people from stealing your fuel, or to let you take some out.

Wondering....since these trucks use an electric fuel pump, could you disconnect the fuel line perhaps coming going to the filter on top of the motor, connect a hose to that line and then turn on the key (not start the motor)?

Don't know what the GPM flow is on those pumps or if it would burn it out trying to evacuate 25 gallons. Just trying to think outside the box.

Could do that, or disconnect the line at the HFCM on the frame, put a piece of hose and clamp on it and run the line in a bucket. Might be a little easier, plus you won't have to hold the bucket.
