    There is a restriction in the fuel filler neck that makes it difficult to siphon gas out! I don't believe there is a drain plug on the tank. If the tank has to be removed I either use the fuel pump relay to run the fuel out of the tank into a can, or you have to remove the filler neck hose and stick a siphon hose into the tank. Autozone have some popular workshop manuals for free on line once you register (for free) on their website http://bit.ly/autozone_repair_info. There is also a company that independent auto repair shops buy their information from that the same information inexpensively to do it yourselfers. The information is year make and model specific repair procedures, service bulletins, component locations, wiring diagrams ect.... Alldata is very easy to navigate http://bit.ly/AllData_Repair_Manuals_Online
