Draining Very Old Fuel


Recommended Posts

Hello all. I've just recently began working on my bass boat that's been sitting for years. There's a story on why I've been an idiot & let it sit for years; that story can be found at this link 


I'm going to drain the old fuel out myself here in the next day or two & would like some pointers on ow you've done it. I'm going to use some sort of siphoning set up that keeps me from using my mouth. Any suggestions on what to buy & from where? I know Bass Pro sells a set up but I've also heard that you can get an aquarium draining system as well. Does places like Auto Zone sell siphoning equipment?

I know this is a late reply, but yes, Autozone or any of the others sell siphoning equipment. I drained a bunch of diesel fuel outta my semi before putting it up for sale, and got the siphon from Advance. Worked pretty good, albeit slow when you’re talking 130 or so gallons
