How to steal gas from a project car

Ok, Last nite i got off of work and stopped by my buddys house, and we decide to leave. I know i have to hit up a gas station, but wasnt expecting to run out just yet... So I was followin my buddy out of his development, when i notice im about to run out of gas. I hit him up with the highbeams, but he keeps going.

I turn around, and make it back to his house, barley. I have to push my 96 Grand Caravan up his driveway...

So im there, bust open his garage... 3 gas cans. None of them have a drop of gas... Sweet.

Im looking around, and see the infamous civic, awaiting its H22 swap. It has a dead battery, no engine, and no ecu... Odly enough it still has a system. Hmmm.

So, The mcguyver in me came out... Why dont i just pump his gas tank dry, b/c he cant use the gas right now anyway? Hehehe, I got an evil grin...


So, this is my how to... If your ever out of gas, or your project car has a full tank, and you do not (and you have no ECU in the car) follow my madness...

Since the battery was dead, I had to jump that shit...

I went to turn the key... Nothing. the radio worked, but no pump. I was sad, so i just blazed some lil wyte (mad blackish white dude) and tryd to figure out whats next.

I got my game plan...

1st step... Find the pump.

Once found, take the plate off, and unplug it.

Now you need to find a +12v source... The amp was working, so i figured id tap into that... Found a small drill bit, drilled into the wire, and wrapped the jumper wire around that wire.

So we got a power source. Lets hook it up.

Voila,
That 255lph pump starts singin... I got a good 8 gallons of gas out of it, and left a little in the car.

Now I dont even need to hit up the gas station... Sweet.

Lol... I seen you replyd in the email notification... and looked foreward to your response.

This is actualy a decent EASY/FREE way to drain your tank w/o tools, b4 you store your car for a project thats gona take a long time, or to get rid of old gas.




I had nothing better to do at the time, and was limited on tools, but not immagination.
 
You almost also became a bomb.

all that wiring ? Frayed wires hanging around the ground and a tube of gasoline ?
The battery is just slumped there, ready to leak out ? Man, you guys gotta get your act together :eek:
