My 2002 Lexus SUV has an almost full 25 gallon gas tank.

I'm trading it in & wondered if there is an anti siphon apparatus in the fuel line that may prevent me from getting the gas out?

There is either a screen or a blocking device to prevent a siphon tube from getting in to the tank. The easy way to get the gas out is to find a conveniently located fitting in the fuel line that goes to the engine, disconnect it, plug a hose onto the fitting, and turn on the ignition.

Why not take the long way to the dealership?

Request an equal amount of fuel in your new vehicle ... or a stinkin' $75 off.

You mean turn the key to the accessory position? Don't want to be running the engine like that / Engine won't run like that.

I meant turn on the ignition, but don't try to start it. I'd be surprised if the fuel pump was powered in ACC.
