Drain the Old Fuel Tank
The first step in this process is draining the fuel out of the old tank. Many tanks have a small stop valve on the body of the part that allows you to neatly drain all of the fuel. If this is the case, simply loosen the valve and let the fuel run out into the fuel can.
Dropping a fuel tank can be difficult depending on the vehicle it is in and how much fuel is in the tank. You can make removing the fuel tank a little less daunting, if you know what you are doing and have the correct tools and equipment to do so.
If you don`t have a lift available to make removing the fuel tank easier, use a floor jack. Place a 4-foot length of 2-inch by 6-inch board on the jack. This will help steady the tank on the jack while you roll it out from under the vehicle.
The need to remove or lower a gas tank from an automobile is very uncommon, but there are a few instances where it may be necessary to drop the gas tank. Components like an internal fuel pump, the fuel gauge sensor, or fuel lines and electric wires may need to be serviced, replaced, or repaired.
Hard particulate causes problems with moving parts in the fuel system. This can lead to starting problems, poor engine performance, idling issues and potentially complete engine failure.
Insert hose into fuel tank and begin pouring a stream of clean, hot water. While water is filling, spray mild detergent in the tank. If opening allows, use a brush to loosen debris from the sides of the tank. Stop stream of water.
The average cost for a Fuel Tank Replacement is between $1,289 and $1,431. Labor costs are estimated between $259 and $326 while parts are priced between $1,030 and $1,105.
To get the gas disconnected simply, reach behind the stove, and check the gas shutoff valve on the gas lines. Generally, there`s a shutoff valve before the stove and a flexible gas line. So, if you find it turn the lever to cut the gas supply to the kitchen completely.

I have a husqvarna 323L string trimmer. I stored it after running the tank & carb dry for about two years. I fueled it, then started it, & it ran for a minute then died like I turned the switch off. Since it would not restart, I found the fuel filter had broken off the hardened fuel line & it sucked gummy crap out of the tank & into the carb. Failing at cleaning the carb, I finally put a new carb on it & replaced the pump, hoses & filter. It has ran good till this year. I winterized it with stabilizer & left it with a full tank over the winter. The gas in the tank was gone when I got ready to use it this year. I filled the tank with premix, checked for leaks, then started it. It would run fine for about half a tank, start idling poorly (lean) then cutoff & refuse to restart till I refilled the tank. I finally found the tank had cracks & was letting pressure out of the tank & apparently this was causing the carb to lose it’s ability to siphon gas out of the tank. So I replaced the tank which came with new hoses & a filter, which I properly installed to the carb. It cranked right up, but when it runs a half tank, the carb quits sucking gas out of the tank. When I pump to prime the carb, it moves the fuel into the carb, but the pump never gets hard like it does when I prime the carb when the motor is cold. I have to keep refilling the tank, prime, & then it starts & runs until the tank gets about half empty. The new fuel filter is down in the gas tank properly, but It will not run after it shuts off until I refill the tank & prime. I’m baffled. New tank, new hoses, new filter, new carb, & I can find no leaks in the fuel system. It runs strong. The 323L is a two-stroke & it always cranks on the second pull from cold on a full tank. Any ideas?
My tractor stalls like it is starved for gas although the gas tank is full. I,ve changed the fuel filter and the gas cap. I’ve cleaned out the gas tank, gas lines, and the carburetor bowl. The problem seems more acute when the gas tank is full or near full. At this time to alleviate the problem, I blow through the gas cap and the fuel filter fills with gas and it runs good again. But as soon as the fuel filter has no more gas, of course, it stalls until I blow on the gas cap. As the tank gets down to about 1/3 full, the engine runs OK. What else could cause this condition?
I had a similar problem with a sears tractor. close to the carbarator is a rectangle box with a rubber hose going to the engine block – remove the hose and spray carb cleaner in the hose wait a few mins and try again – its a vacuum for the carb
Just bought a used leaf blower, homelite, gas leaks out of the gas tank, where the gas tube fits into it.

I assume you’re describing the gas tank cap. if so, the o-ring is missing from the gas tank cap. You can find those at hardware stores.

How do I drain the gas from my Poulan Pro 500ex?

My 128LD is just about 1 yr. old. It has sat thru the winter with gas in the tank. This is the first time I’ve had it out this spring. When I push the primer bulb no gas is visible. Could the oil in the gas have separated and blocked the lines to the carb? They look clear. I’m having trouble trying to remove the lines. Can they be cleaned using a pipe cleaner or other small object or am I barking up the wrong tree?
Your right, what happemd when the fuel is left in for a while is, the petrol evaporates off leaving the oil gumming up everything. You can flush through with need fuel, but make sure you remove all the parts first and dont run the engine on the neat fuel.
