Re: Siphon a Laguna?

you would be better off hotwiring the pump to drain the tank, you could either swap out one of the fuel lines with another quick connect line and have your hosepipe on the end of that to the jerrycan.
the filler unit is designed to stop oiks from shoving a pipe down it and trying to drain the tank.

best place for a bit of quick connect pipe (unless your breaking the car) is from a scrapyard for a foot or so of pipe and the power connector for the pump.

use a fuel pump or proper syphon never-ever suck(by mouth) petrol/deisel tastes really-really disgusting(its also highly carcinogenic), and you will spend half an hour(at least) throwing up afterwards.......

i'd also recommend you do it in the shade or in the evening when its not soo hot
(and remember !!! no naked flames or fag in mouth! 350 idiots in africa just prooved that safety tip the hard way)
