Help! Need to get gas out of tank!

Hi! Does anyone know if the RAB auto hobby has the ability to siphon gas out of a tank? I had planned a long drive this weekend, so I got gas,but then didn't go. The car is supposed to ship tomorrow and it has too much fuel in it......They can keep the fuel! Just need to get it out! Any ideas appreciated....!

Go to The Exchange. Grab yourself some gas cans and some tubing. Syphon it yourself. It is not difficult to do.

I don't know if the Auto Skills Shop will do it, but if you call and they won't try calling Frank Roth.

Hi! So, I looked at the video for the newer cars, as you can't just siphon anymore.... I have to confess, I have no idea about cars, except that I know how to change my own oil. I really need to find some place that can do this for me so I don't mess up the car right before I ship it.... Do you know if the auto hobby can do this? Thanks!

Thank you! I will try him tomorrow if the auto hobby can't help me.

If you have ADAC give them a try. They may help if you are a longtime member. Otherwise just about any mechanic will do it.
