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.

Torque is the low-end muscle that gets you out of the blocks when the light turns green. It's the thrust that squashes you into the seat when you hammer the gas. Torque is good. Torque is your friend.
