Removing gas

Postby Gidget » Tue Jan 20, 2015 2:25 pm

Hi,

What is the fastest and easiest way to empty the tank? Do you guys use a syphon? Dump it out? My carb and lines are clear, but I want to get the rest of the gas out of the tank.

Also.... what do you put it in? An old milk jug?

Thanks!
M.

put it in your truck and delute it with fresh fuel from the gas station

it is best to leave your scoot parked all winter with a full tank since O2 air can rust a empty tank
