    Thanks, nice read. I figure on using this method: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B075C3NNZF...v_ov_lig_dp_it
    Don't know if you could defeat the check valve with this.....

    A well placed, fast moving, screw driver, and a catch can to collect the fuel. In a SHTF situation, you do what is necessary.

    there's a mix these days of metal and poly gas tanks - but you don't want to be slamming around down there with a hammer and screwdriver on a metal tank or strike the frame or something >>>> you want a long reach brass punch and a non-metallic striker of some kind ...

    a short squat oil change pan with a built in pour spout is perfect for the range of vehicles you'll be finding abandoned ....
