Yes, as long as the exit point of the hose is lower than the input (suction) point. Once it is, you have to "bleed" the hose by sucking fuel through it; the gravity of the fuel falling out of the hose at the outlet will perpetuate the suction at the inlet.

Not possible without dropping gas tank and draining it that way.

Depending on the age of a vehicle, it is no longer possible to siphon gas from one vehicle to another. The use of a siphon pump can accomplish this task safely for older automobiles. Manufacturers made the gas tanks unsiphonable to do away with locking gas caps.
