Draining Fuel From Fuel Tank On 107

Recommended Posts

Further to earlier posting I feel it might be prudent to drain the diesel/petrol fuel mixture.

What is best method of draining the petrol tank?

As no response I examined the possibilities . It is not possible to syphon out through the filler as a filter is fitted to prevent this.

In order to separate the filler hose pipes it is necessary to remove the wheel nearest the filler .

Unscrew the second jubilee clip from the petrol tank. Then undo the bolt holding the plastic arm to the frame and pull it away from the hose. The anti symphonic filter is in the arm. I fed a small. diameter plastic pipe in to the fuel tank and syphoned out 32 litres.

There were no bars showing on the fuel gauge.

All a bit fiddly but not difficult.
