Hello,
My Trumpy has been sitting for about 6mths and hasn't been started in that time. I am wanting to drain whatever fuel is in the tank then refill with fresh. Can anyone provide instructions how to do this without removing the tank??

extra fitting

I am getting ready to change out the plastic fuel fittings on my '04 any day now.I'm switching over to the metal fitting from the original plastic type.Back in Feb of this year I ordered 1 extra fitting along with my replacements, a female socket fitting just for the job and for future use.I'm gonna attach a fuel line to it and hang it in the gas can , plug the fitting onto the line fron the tank and turn on the key to pump the fuel out or at least it will syphon out.If you do this, make sure you order the fitting with-out the check valve in it. I haven't done it yet but I see no reason why it won't work.
