Any way to siphon gas from my car?

No I'm not a crook waiting to hit your Charger for extra petro for my Ford Escort.

I would like to know how to siphon 3/4 of a tank of 87 oct gas from my car so I can feed it to my lawn mower and replace it with 1/4 tank of 93 oct for racing.

I already tried a narrow tube and it goes way in but does not make contact with the fluid. I am sure I have an anti-siphon system in my filler.

Any thoughts would be great. Thanks!

I dunno, but that's a nifty sig pic you got goin there with the PO-PO's on your tail.

On topic, this past weekend at Target i picked up somethinmg that should do the trick (assuming no anti siphon system) anyway, it's a vacuum system for changing oil out of small motors where you insert the tube into the oil fill hole...it was only good for a few liters but they did say they had some for larger.

I think it should work on the same vacuum principle for *stealing gas (juuuust kidding)

You shouldn't be able to, because of the anti-siphon.
