Question about 2000 Buick Regal
My daughter's 2000 Regal suddenly quit and the steering wheel locked up. Luckily we were able to get it off the road. My brother in law syphoned a little gas out of the tank and said that it looked like water had been put in the tank.
Will the tank need to be taken out drained etc. or will this solution I found on the Internet work?
The simpliest way to remove water from the tank is to syphon the gas from the tank-it takes most the wter with it. Syphon as much gas out of the tank as you can-put it intoa pair ofor trio of 5 gallon gas cans. You should be able to see the water in the gas. If you add some dry gas and a few gallons of fresh gas you should cure the problem. You can pour most of the siphonedgas back, but don't pour the last portion, the last gasoline , the "dregd" is where the water will be.
The best solution is removing the gas tank there no way you can syhon all the water there gonna have some left whatever left if you live were it cold boy were gonna regret not removing the gas tank it the water inside is dirty its gonna blow the gas pump block gas filter get the tank clean out put a gas cap that lock (BAD BOYFRIEND) you cannot save on that on its our daughter car and its our problem kids that life hope it a fix for you and a fixya for me thanks pierre

I am currently dealing with the problem of excessive water in the gas tank. Because my car 97 BMW 528i utilizes a screen to prevent siphoning, I disconnected the fuel line immediately before the fuel filter and let the fule pump do the work for me. I also purged the upper end of the line (I actually blew air so that the water backed out of the filter). Although this was not an immediate fix, (i ended up flooding the engine and having to pull the plugs to let them dry) I did successfully remove about 3 cups of water. Next i will again purge the lines at the same place and possibly replace the filter which i fear may have become waterlogged. Hope this helps.
