I had not done this before. Or, if I did, there was a petcock to turn off, as I recall. There isn't a fuel petcock on a fuel injected motor.
I did lift the tank and manage to change out the air filter with my two daughters holding it up and the fuel line connected. One of them got some leaking gas. I didn't have a siphon or the desire to siphon out all the gas. The tank was full.
Also, how do you unplug / disconnect the fuel line from the tank? WIll the gasoline just rush out when you do that?
I can't even find a YouTube video on this.
Just got a like new yellow '06 F4I this weekend.
I am also curious, does the vent tube (I think thats what its called, its about 6" long and the end is a plastic tube that makes an angle of about 135 degrees) have a specific mounting point or does it just hang from the tank?
