Install a Fuel Tank

Disconnect the negative battery terminal from your car battery. Remove the fuel tank filler cap, insert a siphoning hose into the tank and empty the contents into a fuel container. Take off all fuel lines and hoses on and around the fuel tank. Lower the old fuel tank to the ground with a floor jack, placing a wooden board underneath the tank for support.
