Siphon gas out of R227

Recommended Posts

Didn’t use my boat (2016 Robalo R227)  as much as I wanted to this year. Would like to try to siphon it out of the fuel filler. It has been treated, but just looking to get a few gallons out. I tried one time to stick a siphon hose down the filler but had no luck. Anybody had any success with this project. Thanks!

Why not connect a pump  at the engine and pull it from there.  You know its coming from the bottom that way.  You could squeeze a few gallon through the ball if your worried about water.

Remove the engine's fuel line from the priming bulb and attach in its place a hose long enough to reach below the height of the fuel tank.

Repeatedly squeezing the priming bulb will produce a siphoning action and a continuous flow of fuel into your fuel  storage container.

Good luck!
