Main project for today is to get 16 gal of gas out of the fuel tank in a car. A week ago my partner filled up in town and then drove to the neighbor town to do some business, 32 miles away. Got rear ended by some gal that wasn't looking at here driving. Long story short, car was totaled. Could not get close to a settlement from the other drivers insurance (Farmers). When they came down to look at the car the adjustor nit picked at ever little thing he could possibly find to devalue the car. It is a '03 Ford Taurus with 175,000 miles, ran great, good gas mileage (28) used no oil and paid for. Her insurance paid her a respectable price (over twice what Farmers offered) for the car so she settled with them and they will go after Farmers for their loss.
Now we are going to get that 16 gal of gas out of that tank. Going to jack it up and put it on jack stands just high enough to get under it with a drill. New titanium drill bit will go through that tank like butter and a battery drill so no electric involved. Let it run into a funnel with hose attached and into 5 gal gas cans. Will drill about midway front to back on the side so there will be enough gas in the tank to drive it a bit. Will put a lag screw with rubber washer in the hole when we are done so no gas leaking around anywhere. They were to get the car yesterday (Salvage yard) but didn't show up so today the gas leaves the tank.
