Siphoning gas from 23 LSV

Recommended Posts

With Covid 19 panic and CA closing lakes I am preparing to not be able to use my boat this summer.  I have fuel stabilizer in the fuel but would like to syphone out as much fuel as possible if the boat sits all summer.

Has anyone tried to siphone gas from a 23 LSV? The tank is quite a bit away from the fuel filler.  Was not sure if stuffing a plastic hose down the filler would reach the tank be able to pull fuel out?

I was considering this pump

Just put a bit more Stabil in the tank.  It'll be good for at least 2 years.

On a 2010 forward it I set basically 6 Phillips head screws and pull the panel. You can access inside of the tank by pulling the fuel return line head and hose 6x 5/16” IIRC. Not a 17, but the same process.

A lot easier than trying to use an Oklahoma credit card, slash siphon through a filler cap. 😁

I know this doesn't answer your question, but I'm in @minnmarker's camp in that I just don't see it being worth your money or time (yet.)  If you're really worried about it I'd maybe make it a project for next winter but if you ran non-ethanol it's really not an issue IMHO.

On my 2004 to get all the fuel out, I hot wired the fuel pump to run and pump the gas out that way.  Not sure it there is a way to access the fuel pump or the fuel pump wiring easily on a 2017.  No need to buy a pump this way and you will get most of it out too.

I've never had a problem siphoning via the filler hole. Just have to twist the tubing as your pushing to get around bends.  I also tilt the trailer to the side I'm on.

I have had issues with gas going bad in my motocross bike within six motnhs that has had stabilizer in it.  California uses crappy fuel, I believe it does have ethanol in it (not 100% sure on this) so I thought I would try and extract as much out of the tank as possible to add fresh fuel.  I have about 10-15 gallons in the tank right now.
