Emptying fuel tank if it is more than 3/4 full

–  Push extraction hose of extraction unit into fuel tank until previously attached marking -arrow- on hose coincides with filler neck -2-.
–  Drain fuel tank via filler neck as far as possible.

In this case, remove the fuel delivery unit and open the non-return valve manually. Ensure that your arm does not come into contact with fuel.

  Note
When no more fuel is extracted, the tank is emptied just enough for the sender flange to be opened without danger.
