Sugar in the petrol tank will quickly cause a car to break down. The sugar gums up fuel lines and injectors, disabling fuel delivery.
No it isn't. Sugar in the petrol tank can still clog fuel lines and petrol filters though.
yes, but you have to remove the exhaust, differential and crossmember to get the tank out to get to the lines.
Remove it or poke a hole in it. There is no drain plug. It is also possible to disconnect the fuel lines at the fuel filter and use the vehicles fuel pump ( if it is working ) to drain the fuel from the tank.
The reason is: When you completely run out of gas your gas lines are completely drained of fuel. When you refuel the car the fuel lines are still empty, and you will need to crank the car until the fuel pump has filled the gas lines and established the correct fuel pressure. it's possible you burnt up the fuel pump running it with no gas.
The fuel pump, and filter will need replaced. The tank will need cleaned out. The lines will need cleaned and the injectors may need replaced.

First off, it is a myth that sugar will ruin an engine. Sugar will not dissolve in gasoline. It may clog the fuel filter or possibly the injectors, but it will not ruin your engine. If very little sugar was poured into the tank, then just change the filter maybe a few times and drive on. If lots of sugar was added, you may need to remove the tank and flush it out, replace the filter, and flush the fuel lines.
The 1998 Oldsmobile fuel lines are held in place with swivel nuts on each end of the fuel line. Turn the swivel nuts to the left to remove the old rotted fuel lines. Reverse the process to install the new fuel lines.
follow fuel lines to filter. remove lines from filter and fit lines to new filter.
IF YOU HAVE FUEL INJECTION. ITS POSSIBLE THE FUEL LINES MIGHT BE PINCHED. ALSO CHECK YOUR ALTERNATOR. CHECK THE FUEL RESERVOIR IF YOU HAVE ONE. MAKE SURE THE FUEL IS BEING PUMPED FROM THE TANK-THRU THE FUEL LINES-TO THE INJECTORS. CHECK THE INJECTORS FOR CLOGGING AS WELL. GOOD LUCK.
If you look beneath the car (any car) and there will be a bundle of small lines, the fuel lines, which lead from the gas tank. Follow those lines to whatever area you are looking for. If there is an external fuel filter, it will be located somewhere along the lines. Some are bundled in a covering, but you will still be able to tell they are the fuel lines.
Nothing. Sugar is not able to dissolve in petrol fuel and thus nothing will happen to the engine. If the day keeps getting hotter and hotter and you run most of the gasoline out of your tank and then refill the tank, you may not have a problem. The Mythbusters team from Discovery Channel did a test on this and found that there was no engine troubles when sugar was added to the fuel in the fuel tanks, at least not initially, but it can clog the fuel system and ruin the fuel pump over time. As it turns out, sugar doesn't dissolve in gasoline. Pouring sand into the gas tank would have about the same effect as pouring in sugar initially. However, when things start to cool off, the sugar can get sticky. It can start gumming up the works. You may need to clean out the gas tank, replace the hoses, and clean out the fuel system and the injectors. It can be a real mess. It can get expensive.
It is unnecessary to bleed the lines after installing a new fuel pump. The fuel pump will pump all the air out of the fuel lines and start to work properly without any bleeding. Just install a new fuel pump and start the engine.
I don't believe that any hybrid rocket engines use sugar as a fuel; while sugar will burn, the specific impulse of sugar is pretty low. However, the Ansari X-Prize winning "SpaceShipOne" used a hybrid rocket fueled by recycled rubber tires, so I suppose anything is possible.
The splice rubber fuel lines must be carefully spliced using the special tool for the purpose. The rubber fuel lines that have been correctly spliced will not leak.
trace fuel lines to filter, disconnect lines from filter, fit lines to new filter
Change it as quick as possible, and have plenty of rags on you, or crack the lines and just let the lines completely drain out into a bucket.
