I don't know about there but here if you have your tank locked they are drilled and drained that way. I would rather let them steal mine than have to buy a new tank. Although if insurance would buy me a titan tank it might be worth it.

How do you syphon fuel out of a tank with a check ball valve in it? Because I've tried several times on my truck, and never got very far...

Cutting or disconnecting the hose coming off the tank sender works pretty good, though.

If I remeber right, the service manual shows a second port on top of the tank for emptying the fuel.

cheaper alternative is just going to autozone and getting a $15 locking cap. that'll buy you like 6 more gallons of diesel than that $45 lid you're going to invest in. Look at it that way...i hate the man.
