How to Clean Out the ENTIRE Fuel System (Vandalized with Sugar in Gas Tank)

Sugar in the gas tank? Rust in your fuel lines? Clogged fuel injectors? Fill your car with diesel instead of gas? In this video I show you how to clean out the entire fuel system from how to clean the fuel tank, change the fuel pump, how to change the fuel filter, how to flush the fuel lines to how to clean the fuel injectors. So if you contaminated your fuel system, after watching this video you will be able to clean it out and get your car or truck running again!

In this case I bought a car that was vandalized and was totaled because someone spray painted the car, keyed the car, and put sugar in the gas tank. Since it was damaged, I got the car for 1/3 of what it is worth fixed up and I am showing you guys how to fix it on a budget to make it a perfectly good running car!

    I had this happen, needed a fuel pump new fuel filter and I was able to use a high pressure air compressor and blow the fuel line out but the injectors it killed the injectors but they were already going out because I had loss of power and my scanner always said injector 2. It took a whole weekend to fix mine and now I use a locking gas cap. Some people are richard craniums. I didn't have to drop my tank because I have a truck, I did a belt tilt with straps in the bed hooks and I used a cherry picker aka engine puller and left my gas tank on and sucked the gas out and then I pressure washed the inside the gas tank when I removed the fuel pump and then I sucked the water out and used a blower a heavy duty blower to dry the inside of the tank and now it's all running and seems like it runs better with new injectors and a clean inside of the tank, smells better when I'm idling it don't smell like old gas on open headers.

    Thanks Chris for your video. You did choose an easy access fuel system. I had to replace the fuel pump in my truck!!! Not so easy. The fuel tank sits underneath tucked up next to the frame.I have larger hands that would not fit between the fuel tank and the frame. It became quite the chore to get things disconnected. I think it would have been quicker and easier to remove the bed of the truck!!!

    Ive seen an entire fuel system gummed up from sugar from a car sent to me from a used car dealer. Repossession vehicle. They put water in the tank with the sugar and when the fuel pumped sugar water slush though the system it eventually gummed up everything including injectors. Had to replace just about everything. Fuel pump and injectors, lines and cleaned the tank by hand. Mix the water and sugar into the fuel and see.
