I need to siphon all the fuel from a 2001 ZX2 so I can replace it with fresh gas. The Ford shop manual claims this is possible, but so far I seem to hit an obstruction before my hose finds any liquid. It seems to me that one possible trouble spot is the lip of the tank's hose fitting, and another is that this aims directly at the fuel pump housing in the tank as well. Has anyone actually done this, or perhaps had the tank out and is familiar with the filler pipe? I want to avoid running the fuel pump because it would eventually run dry and risk damage.
