I have recently removed the gas tank and emptied of it of gas for some body and paint work. There appears to still be some gas in the reserve and i was wondering how to remove it ...

Anyone ?

I would think you could remove the fuel petcock or open it the to reserve, and gently shake the tank to remove any fuel left in the tank. Just a thought.

Take the gas cap off and sit the tank out in the sun for a little while.
The gas will evaporate naturally... sitting it out in the sun will help accelerate the evaporation.

You can add a little acetone, shake it and then empty as much as you can, rig up a hose to direct a car exhaust into the fill pipe, let it idle a while.... the warm, inert gas will evaporate what's left....Mick
