Park on a side hill so all the gas and water goes to the corner of the
tank. Siphon it out with a rubber tube. Then put in gas drier, dry gas
or alcohol with new gas.
Investigate where the water came from. That's too much water from
Just one more reminder of something that has been mentioned several
times. You cannot siphon from a vehicle built at least in the past 20
years (I would guess more like 30) without destroying the antisiphon
I had one of these for years.
Loved it. Self priming parastaltic pump with weighted nozzle just for
pumping out gas tanks. I loved mine and plan to buy another. Slow
and labor intensive, but VERY positive, as in positive displacement.
If you can get a siphon hose into it, you can siphon most out. Applying air
pressure (air hose, Vacume outlet?) to the filler hole as you siphon will help
to start/restart/speed the siphon if you need it, but only use low pressure -
you don't want to pop the tank.

A siphon hose will do it. A squeeze bulb in the hose will make
sucking on the hose unneceessary, and remove the risk of inhaling the
gas (very very bad).
The bulb might have a built-in valve, but if it doesn't, you can use
your thumb over the end of the hose when releasing the bulb, to suck
up the gas.
I've been carrying one in my trunk that I paid a dollar for 25 years
ago. I havent' had a use for it so far. But it might not be
possible to find one so cheap.
