how to drain fuel

Hi, I've been trying to drain old fuel out of my tank since last night and have had no luck.  I tried syphoning out of the filler, but i can't seem to get the tube down far enough to reach the fuel.  I've also tried doing the jumper trick on pellican parts, but i can't seem to get that to work either.  The battery has been painful to charge, though it's less than 1 year old, so I can't rule that out as a contribuing factor.  I can get the car to chug, but haven't dared to try to fully start it with the old fuel.  I have 1/2 tank of fuel that has to adios in order to start the car and replac

Where to find the diffuser for the inlet for the manifold 2002 Boxster

I was at the Tech Tactis, and in the Cayman / Boxster presentation. The talk was on intake air up grades. Throttle housing diameter, splitting the inlet air in the manifold after the throttle. Air filter and exhaust up grades.

"Blowing Bottle" Noise From Fuel Filler Area

Thanks in advance for your help! My vehicle is a 2000 Boxster 2.7L.

My issue began with the infamous noise from the fuel filler area that sounds like someone blowing over the top of a beer bottle. The noise was fairly continuous at slight acceleration around 2500 rpm and would stop with throttle change. After much research here and elsewhere, I elected to change the two purge valves in the front passenger fender area (P/N 996-605-213-01 and 996-605-201-01) along with the fuel filler cap. This did not resolve the issue.

How often would you suggest taking my 09 caymanS out on the open highway? I do alot of city driving and recently after letting the car sit for three weeks or so it was hard starting, after i got it started it was rough idling for a while. No warning lights just a rough idle for some time. It normally starts right up.Thanks, Greg G
