Install a Fuel Tank

Take off the fuel tank filler cap and turn off the car battery by unplugging the negative battery terminal. Put in the siphoning hose to empty the fuel into a fuel container. Raise the trunk on jack stands to get under it. Remove all fuel lines and hoses on or around the fuel tank. Lower the fuel tank to the ground with a floor jack.
