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 replace the alternator.  Also, I'm the wire for the jumper trick is just wire that I have lying about.  Not sure if there's a specific guauge of wire that i need to use.  Any help would be appreciated!
