How long does it take to get bad fuel out of lines?
Depends on how you get it out. If possible the tank should be drained and the lines disconected and flushed. If you can drain or syphon the tank on a modern fuel injected car the system should circulate the bad gas back to the tank in just a minute or two when trying to start the car. REMEMBER this will not work unless the tank has new good gas in it. The amount of bad gas in the lines should not hurt the new gas as long as you have a Half tank or more of new gas.
How can you get bad gas out of your car?
Add 1 bottle of ordinary rubbing alcohol to the tank. If The Bad gas is just gas that has water in it, then the alcohol will allow the water to "burn" with the gas. == == The best way to do it is kind of a pain. Take the tank off and dump the bad gas out. While the tanks off would be a good time to flush it out too. You can use a ordinary garden hose and siphone the gas out of the tank.
