I know this forum is more for the fuel systems side of it but i coodnt find anywhere else to post this. As some might no i have a sweet ED and a not so sweet XD ute (which im doing up). Now my sweet ED uses lotsa sweet juice and me bein an apprentice dont got much sweet dough u followin? lol. Anyway da XD ute has half a tank and no matter wat i do i cant syfen nothin from it, ive tried all kinds a hoses but it must have a valve or grill or summin to stop me suckin da s**t out. Is there any way to get into that fuel tank? Cheers people!

why don't u just use the fuel pump of the XD to pump the petrol out and catch it at the engine bay?......like unplug the fuel supply line. extend the line to the ED and u have ur own mini servo.
