  • Removing old gasoline from a 246

    I have a spare electric fuel pump. Would it be safe/work to draw the gas from the hoses at the fuel switch?

    I have done it that way. My tanks slope slightly to the center so I tilt the boat so the pickup is at the lowest point.

        I've done it too. I just try to make sure I don't strike a big electrical arc when connecting up the pump.

          I tilt the bow up a little and siphon out the gas every year on my 246 with no issues.
