does anyone know of a way to drain the fuel tank. there is a white thing on the bottom of my fuel tank that looks like a "U" will that drain it or is there another way. we tried syphening it out and i guess they were made so it cant be done.
Fill it up with gas? I don't know how to do it on your truck but search for and read through some threads where people put gas in the tank and see if they said how they drained the tank.
no it doesnt have gas but it has bad fuel there is water in it and the truck wont run right. i would take it back to the place i just filled it at but thats if the truck would even make it there and they probably wouldnt do anything anyhow. oh i just noticed i posted this in the 3rd gen. section dont know why i did that.
put a hole in the bottom....atleast a .45 caliber....that pught to drain it fairly quick haha.. but seriously...pull your fill neck off and you should be able to siphon from there...
i would actually siphon the tank then pull it out to make sure you get it clean and dry on the inside....water reeks havic on the fuel system... good luck
X's 2, i did that on my moms 02 after she filled it up with gasoline... i used a small jabsco and some garden hose. good luck. you should let that place know they are selling bad fuel? they may also compensate you for it...

i drained mine to install the 1/2" pickup by hooking up a pump to the line coming from the tank to the fuel filter. You could also use the stock lift pump by unplugging it and applying 12V from the battery.
now it seems like it doesnt want to start by its self we have to give it a little gas and it will start right off and run fine. but it just needs a little gas and it will start. my dad said its like its loosing its prime somewhere. like fuel isnt getting to it until we give it a little gas and it starts. i said about it might be an injector but he said it wouldnt run right at all if that was the problem. someone said the idle might be too low, how do i adjust it? thanks
the guy i got mine from had put about half a tank of gas instead of diesel in mine. i ran a 1/2 inch hose into the neck, and worked it into the bottom of the tank. drew out the bad fuel and filled mine up with ol' #2 and a full bottle of power service. did this twice and no problems yet...
