Question 1983 Chevy cargo van, need to drain gas tank, help

Hi we have a 83, chevy cargo van which we store in the winter, but this summer we didn't use it and it still has the "stabile" stuff in it...We'd like to remove the old gas w/the stabile in it and replace with fresh gas before it goes into storage very soon...however, it will not syphon from the filler , we need a "simple" solution for this as we do not have a garage to drop the tank or a lift to get it in the "air"...any suggestions? Help us please!!

Welcome to the forums

I've had both 1980 and '81 GMC work vans. I could siphon gas out of each. If I remember correctly you need to use a small diameter hose. I used a piece of air hose.

Is using the van and burning up the gas not an option?
