Default how do i siphon gas

i need to siphon the gas out of my 96 cavalier and my buddies prelude and neon. I have the problem of the hose not going down into the gas. It either isn't long enouph or it just stops and wont go any further into the tank.

find the fuel return line and pull it off and run a hose from it into a gas container. should be attatched to the feul pressure reg or near. hope that helps.

uhh... you cant siphon gas on newer cars as i believe.. they have some kinda valve in em ... im not shure.. but when i tried siphoning gas outta my car when i wrecked it with a full tank.. i had to buy this little *** hose and use that.. that **** sucked soo much.. it took like 2 hours to siphon 11 gallons

Why not let the fp do all the work? Just a suggestion.

newer cars have a screen in the filler neck that wont allow siphoning.

buy your own gas

drain it out at the bottom of the tank, hondas have bolts.
