3-114 FUEL SYSTEM (DFI)
Fuel Tank Removal
Gasoline is extremely flammable and can be ex-
plosive under certain conditions, creating the
potential for serious burns. Make sure the area is
well-ventilated and free from any source of flame
or sparks; this includes any appliance with a pilot
light. Do not smoke. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Disconnect the battery (–) terminal. To avoid fuel
spills, draw it from the tank when the engine is
cold. Be prepared for fuel spillage; any spilled fuel
must be completely wiped up immediately.
Turn the ignition switch OFF.
Wait until the engine cools down.
Disconnect the battery (–) terminal (see Battery Removal
in the Electrical System chapter).
Draw the fuel out from the fuel tank with a commercially
available pump [A].
Use a soft plastic hose [B] as a pump intake hose in order
to insert the hose smoothly.
Put the hose through the filler opening [C] into the tank
and draw the fuel out.
Spilled fuel is flammable and can be explosive un-
der certain conditions. The fuel can not be removed
completely from the fuel tank. Be careful for re-
mained fuel spillage.
