All you have to do is make sure engine and fuel pump is not on. Then open up the gas cap. That will remove the pressure inside tank and fuel line. There will still a little fuel left in lines when disconnected so be careful. Next time fuel pump comes on it will force all air from lines when cranking engine.

{added on 11/23/2008}:

Most fuel injected engines will still have pressure in the fuel lines even after doing this. To relieve this remaining pressure, all you have to do is find the Pressure Relief Valve on the fuel rail on the engine itself. It looks just like the valve stem on a tire. Simply use something (preferably the proper tool) to release the remaining pressure in the fuel lines the same as you would release pressure in a tire. Please be careful to not get any fuel spray in your eyes or face.

disconnect the fuel pump relay , refer to your owners manual for realy box location on the van
