You innocent guys must never have siphoned gas at night very much, huh?
Only a novice sucks on the hose. You wrap a rag around the hose and push it against the filler neck to make a bit of a seal. Then you BLOW into the hose to pressure up the tank. That starts the siphon.....
I do something similar....instead of a hose to blow through, I stick an air nozzle wrapped around a wet rag and use a little pressure from my air compressor to start the flow.

Gene not only are you're comments stupid,but you also have no idea.
I will catch heat for this but i do not care. You my man are either stupid or just plane lazy or both. And i have no respect for you what so ever after those comments you just made if everybody thought like you this planet would be barren of all life form.
I have no more to say on this subject because talking to you is like talking to a ROCK nothing sinks in.
I apologize to the original poster for taking your thread way off course.

Well dammit, just dammit.
Coincidentally, my project for today is to change out the coolant in my little S10 Chevy truck. So I got my 3/8" hose & bucket & rag and was feeling all jaunty about doing it so cool, and ding dang---there's no room to stick my hose into this radiator. There's no drain cock that I can find either. So I go dig up some teeny 1/4" OD tubing I got and it just barely fits and I know it won't reach the bottom and it's been siphoning for a half hour now and I have about a quart in my bucket.....I'll go stick the compressed air nozzle in to speed it up, but it will still take 6 hours to do a one hour job at this rate. With Big Ace the Wonder Dog & the Kitties (look for their latest hit, "Feed Me, Feed Me, Feed Me", on the Motown label) living here, I am not going to just undo the bottom rad hose & spill a-freeze on the garage floor.

Damn, Corvetttes are just so easy to work on compared to other cars, aren't they?

So tell me about this magic "extractor"!

Later,
John

PS: I am not going to flush the old coolant down the toilet till I find out the truth about that--I'll let you all know.

NO wonder food is so damn high in price, you refuse to farm productively, and more interested in some weenie theory, instead of broad statistical FACTS......your side is totally discredited.....your statements are incorrect for every one.....

you are more concerned for yellow tailed snail darters than getting electric power....I think all eco weenies need have their lights truned out, while the rest of the world marches ON with technology....

"COMPROMISE", Gene, "compromise"---look it up. It's a word whose meaning has been lost in this day & age & society. It's a good word, it defines a necessary state of being to be a succesful member of any society. It goes well with the word "contemplate"--to think about, to wonder, to question given habits, notions, ways.
The black & white 'I'm right and you are wrong and there is nothing else to discuss or know or learn' does not work. That mindset is one of stagnation: it only destroys, it does not learn or build or create. It is pure selfishness. Perhaps you are the Chosen One, the all-knowing pure speaker of truth unlike any other human who has come before you--but I wonder, if that is true, why are you not the ruler of the world, living the perfect life? Either way, whether you are or are not, I am still me and I have a life which is not yours. And I am but one of millions of individual human beings on this little orb we are all stuck on, with thoughts, hopes, and dreams of a good future. For myself, now, but also for those lives who will follow mine after I am but worm food. I contemplate the future--my heirs-- and am willing to compromise my immediate gratifications to ensure their survival & growth.

Guess I'm just stupid that way. Silly me. I should just realise it's only about ME, nothing exists but for MY gratification, the entire universe revolves around ME and MY immediate desires. For after all, when I die, the universe ends, doesn't it?

Gene,
I propose an experiment to prove your point. Drain your radiator, place in a bowl, and give it to your wifes cat. Get back to us with the results.

I been listening to the eco weenie, safety maven Naderites for some 45? years now,

much to the detriment of this country.....

can anyone name ONE thing they been correct about....???

NO, not in the long run....the very MILDEST damage they do is increase funding for lawyers and the penchant for obtusely obfuscating the obvious to the oblivious.....

Sorry, but when reading this enviro crap for so long, and finding out the truth about things.....I just have to laugh at the nitwits buying into that crap...
