Hi guys i need to drain the fuel on my 156 the battery is flat (lights work but engine turns over slowley) any ideas on how to do this without taking the tank off? i suppose i can undo the fuel pipe to the fuel rail turn the iggy on and do it that way but the other problem is im not sure as to where the fuel pipe is located that i need to remove to enable me to get the fuel out. also i take it i will need to charge the battery up?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Steve

Your best is to the remove fuel rail pipe and turn ignition on and off,this will get most of the fuel out and then fill tank up and this will dilute any stagnant fuel.If fuel i dirty you need to remove tank and get it cleaned out.
