The auto tranny finally went south in my '95 Taurus 3.0 (160k
miles)--naturally right after I filled up the gas tank.
It did get me home, and now I want to remove the gas for the
other car. There must be a screen or something way down in the
tank filler pipe, because a siphoning hose won't even reach the
I do not want to cut the line anywhere (the type that takes a
special tool to force the line on any fittings), because the car
is still moveable and I need it to stay that way for a while yet.
Next idea(?) is to utilize the fitting under the hood where one
screws on a pressure gauge to test the fuel pressure, and
possibly just pump out the gas??
If this will work, what could I use/buy to screw on and depress
the valve core, short of buying a whole pressure gauge?
Thanks for any help or ideas. Lee.
