A few weeks ago I posted about not being able to siphon gas from a 2002 T&C as instructed by the factory manual. Problem was that I wasn't able to get the hose all the way into the tank. On closer perusal of the manual, I noticed that the fuel tank removal procedure instructed to use 5/16" diameter plastic tubing with the insertion end cut to a 30-degree point that would allow it to get past the fuel inlet check valve. I tried this and it worked! (I originally used 1/2" diameter plastic tubing without the tip cut to a point.) The fuel pump replacment instructions only said to "siphon remaining fuel from the fuel tank," failing to mention that the siphoning procedure was described in detail the "fuel tank removal" section.
