    Default removing gas from boat?

    Anyone have any easy method of getting about 30 gallons of fuel out of the triton? thought about hot wiring the fuel pump and let it do it..still might be the way to go. maybe someone has been there done that?

    I used the primer bulb to pump about 20 gallons out of the Stratos, but I wouldn't recommend it. Can you say Popeye arms?
    If you removed the fuel line from the motor, and added enough hose to get lower than the tank, it should siphon, but it might
    take a while.

    Bill,
    Had to do this one time on my old Tracker. You said an easy way well, get a siphon hose put it in the gas tank, get another/several tanks to receive the old gas (30 gallons worth) and suck hard on the hose until you get gas coming out and then start loading up the tanks. You said easy. This is old school but works.

    I don't have a primer bulb. Was hoping to avoid siphoning but I might have to.

    Go to Lowes and buy an electric kerosene pump, they run on two C batteries. Add about three feet of clear plastic tubing to get you to the bottom of the gas tank and pump away. I bought one to move liquid from one barrel to another and it works great.

    Get a shaker hose siphon. The easy way. Think northen sells them.

    I did this last year when I had to get the old gas out of the procraft. Worked like a charm

    Yeah, I think the pump only ran me about $15 or so.

    The electric pump is the way to go. I've done it many times. I used the gas I took out of the boat and put it in my truck without any issues at all. Worked fine.
