Syphoning Petrol.

Has anyone got any idea how to get fuel out of my 156.
I'd just put 40 in when my big ends went and it's now just sat in the tank when it could be in my Giulietta.
I've tried to get a pipe in the tank, but can't get it in.
Any help please.

Generally vehicles now have an anti syphoning device in the pipework.
Probably easier whipping off the tank.

Are you scrapping it? If so just drill the tank.
