Re: Fuel tank longevity
There is another option for emptying your tank, if you have an electric fuel pump installed. I disconnected the fuel supply line at the mechanical lift pump and added a three foot piece of hose with a double hose barb, which allowed me enough hose to stick into a fuel can. Then you just need to run your electric pump to pump it dry (I pulled the instrument panel audible alarm wire temporarily in order to mute the oil pressure alarm). Most of the Walbro type pumps, pump at around 20 gals/hour, so it isn't fast, but it is easy and effective. The biggest advantage to this is that you are running your fuel through your Racor filter and polishing it in the process. This will also give you an indication of how dirty your fuel is/was by checking your filter afterwards.
