You can always drill a hole in the tank

I get called to about 3 gas thefts a week so I know there's a few different ways to siphon gas. The most dangerous is to stick a tube down the filler tube and suck on the end to create a vacuum so the gas comes up the tube. Dangerous because abut 50% of the time the gas comes up the tube so fast the thief gets a mouthful of gasoline before he knows what's happening. Safest is to buy a $5 siphon kit that has a plastic bulb on one end to create that vacuum so the gas comes up and out without anything touching it.

Messiest way is the way just posted. Make a hole in the tank but since you must drive it to get rid of it, that's not the way to go.

Not sure of the PT but most new cars have something built into the gas fill tube to stop the siphoning of gas.

Either use the siphon kit (if the PT tube lets you get down to the tank) or forget about the $30 and let it go with the car.

Question: if you do siphon it, do you have enough containers to hold all the gas, but after saying that, at today's prices, it's only about 5 gallons of gas. Best to just leave it in there.

I'd say welcome to the forum, but since you getting rid of the PT and you've never been here since you've owned the car, guess we won't be seeing much of you.

if you have a fuel pressure tester , there is a line to bleed gas off of the unit. The fuel pump does all the work. "You" just have to know how to turn the pump on with out the motor running. It does not take very long if "You" know what you are doing.

Must be hard up for gas money. You don't cipher gas. You siphon it. $30 of gas isn't that much to hassle about.

If I sell a car, the gas goes with it. It's a matter of saying "thank you" for buying my car. Although, four or five gallons of gas is not much of a thank you, come to think of it. But it's the thought that counts ....
