Re: Draining megane coupe fuel tank

Theres no drain plug on the tank so you have to either pump the fuel out or remove the tank with the fuel in it and tip it out.The easiest way is to find the fuel pump wiring and pipe work and run the pump from an external battery and modify the pipe work so it drains into a can.I'm sure I don't need to remind of you of the safety implications when handling petrol,espcially when you could have sparks coming from any homemade electrical connections....

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
