You cannot, because of the screen blocking the fuel tank filler pipe, siphon the fuel via the filler pipe. However, there is no screen on the filler vent pipe. Remove the vent line hose at the tank, check the inside diameter of the vent pipe. Go to a building supply store buy four feet of so of clear plastic tubing, 3/8 inch outside diameter should do it, but check first. Insert plastic tube via the vent pipe into the tank and start the siphon. Worked very well for me and I removed nearly 17 gallons in less than 45 minutes.

What is the difference between Cadillac deville and a Cadillac fleetwood?

The main difference between the Cadillac Fleetwood and Cadillac is size. The Cadillac Fleetwood is usually bigger than the deville but it all depends on the year to determine the difference. In some of the older years like 1984 and before, it was only an inch or two difference in length and slighty different appearance but in the eighties and ninties the fleetwoods were usually significantly longer and a little wider when comparing the two, basically two completely different models.Like in like 1985 as well as in 1995 when the two were very different models especially in size. So the general rule for comparing the two is the Fleetwood is usually bigger specifically in length.
