Want to use the gas to run my 10K gen. How do I circumnavigate the anti siphon system in the gas tank inexpensively?

I don't recommend doin that at all to be honest with you.
However, I beleive there's a in line fuel filter on the driver's side frame rail. In theory, you could crack the line loose on the filter, relieving fuel pressure, then disconnect it. After doing so, you may be able to connect a piece of rubber hose and turn on the ignition key. By doin this the fuel pump will pump the gas for you.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS, NOR AM I RESPONCIBLE IF YOU DAMAGE ANYTHING.

This was all in theory if you wanted to. I wouldn't bother. Just buy a gas can and go to a gas station.

The pump will only run for a few seconds if the engine is not running. In order to keep the pump running you would have to jump the fuel pump relay. It also is not an anti siphon feature. It is a check ball to prevent fuel spillage in case of roll over, the fact that it stops you from siphoning is just a by product of the check ball installed in the fuel filler tube.

Instead of cracking the line at the fuel filter, you "could" remove the return line to the tank, plug in a hose and START the engine... then the pump will run as long as you need.

Again - not responsible for any consequences. (NO SMOKING AROUND THIS!!!!)

The use of commas would increase the readability. He probably meant;

If the SHTF and I wanted to use the gas to run my 10K gen, how do I circumnavigate the anti siphon system in the gas tank inexpensively?

I think he means if the SHTF like during the hurricane when there was no gas to be had and he wanted to run his genny on what is left in his vehicle.

If you have a genny, you should have gas cans, full, with a healthy dose of Sta-bil, which will keep gas good for a couple years. What I do is tag the cans with the date and burn them in the vehicle after a year and replenish the cans. If you do not have 10 gallons a day to burn, no sense in having a genny. 70 gallons will last a week running a genny during the day or during the night. Too many people do have a genny but only 5 gallons of gas = pointless.

Be VERY careful jamming a siphon hose down ANY filler neck. You could damage evaporative emission equipment(EXPENSIVE) in the filler neck that controls fumes from escaping. This can/will result in a check engine light on, and, hence, NYS inspection failure.

Just curious, I haven't tried siphoning gas from a car in decades. Do most or all new cars have an antisiphon system? I mean, beyond the locking gas cover.

Sorry to go off topic here but does anyone know a junk/salvage shop that will be open tomorrow. I am looking for a Fuel Tank for my 1999 Chevy Blazer 4 Door LS V6 4.3L. Brought my Blazer to the mechanic today to replace a fuel pump. The gas tank itself is plastic but the ring where the fuel pump goes in the tank is made out of metal that is rusted and hence cannot be repaired. So I need a gas tank. Dealer is charging $600 for it. Looked online and I am having trouble finding one for my 4 door. All the ones online are for 2 doors which will not fit.

Exactly. If Shtf I would want my truck fueled up and ready in case of evacuation.

You need a real tiny hose (diameter) to get past the check valve. It's in there to help prevent the gas going back up the filler neck. If it's accessible (I don't remember) you can loosen the hose clamp where the filler neck meets the tank and pull the rubber hose off. Sometimes the valve is in the filler neck other times it's right on the inlet of the tank itself. That'll make it a lot easier to get a hose in, and if the valve is on the tank it'll be right there.

not every fuel system has a return line. Smoking won't ignite gas, if it I did I'd be dead a long time ago. Lighting a cigarette will ignite it though.

If I had to get fuel out I would take the hose off the the hand bicycle air pump and tap onto the schrader valve on the fuel rail. Disconnecting fuel lines/filters is a PIA that sometimes requires a special gadget.

Home Depot 1/4" vinyl tube should do it is it just has the flapper and no air gap/cage in the tank. It will take a while longer. Yes that's how I scavenged both tanks on my F250 during Sandy.

Thanks.Its safer to store the gas in the pickup than in my attached garage. It's only for an emergency.
