Firstly, you'll be "siphoning" the fuel.

Secondly yes just use the pump to drain it out. Its the easiest way of doing it.

The fuel pump stops after a few seconds, you have to take the relay out and bypass the power straight to the pump, or you can refit the pressure line, and put the return line into your fuel can, and do it while the car is running.

The relay is behind the battery, i think its the green relay. Just turn the key on and touch each relay until you figure which one is the one switching on then off.

Its not going to work with the relay out only, you'll need to jump the constant 12v to the fuel pump out wire.

If you have a vacuum cleaner, put the hose on the blow side and put the hose into you filler neck and then undo the fuel line and blow the fuel out :)

Connect pin 30 to pin 87. 30 is your constant 12v+, and 87 is to the pump. Which terminal is which is written on the underside of the relay
