#8278 Did you know that you don't have to drop your gas tank or use a siphon?


there's a 17-19mm bolt (can't remember) on the left rear of the tank. most likely it is covered in undercoating. So you'll probebly have to scrape that off with a wire brush or flat screwdriver.


have a pan under, it comes out fast!

when it starts to look like you're getting close to draining it all, jack up the front right corner of the car.

that will cause more gas to go to the corner of the tank with the drain plug.

I was told that the EG was the first gen civic to have this handy feature :thumb:
Edit: EF's also have this. Thanks for the update :wink:

#8357 A while ago some guy used to drill holes in gas tanks to steal gas or diesel...
Fat chance it's gonna happen to me, before I can jack the car up, it has to be driven onto a set of planks or something :D

But this is handy, a friend of mine wrecked his EG with a full tank...
