Question Getting old gas out of the tank;94 1LE

1st post. Have a low mileage 94 1LE bought new. Car is a "trailer queen" and not used on the road. From time to time I start the car and everything is fine. Have added "stay fresh" additive to gas to preserve it.
I tried to syphone the tank but it does not work due to I believe sometype
of baffle in the tank. Can disconnet the fuel filter and then run the gas out of tank by running fuel pump w/o starting the car. Just want a few comments on the subject. Larry

Just screw on a length of hose to fuel pressure test port on the fuel rail, use a length of hose long enough to insert into a container. Pull the fuel pump relay and jumper across to
power up fuel pump. Run pump till tank is empty.

RBD: Thanks much; sound simple enough; not sure where this "fuel test
port" is on the LT1. Is it on the Drivers or Pass. side of engine? Front or
back? Thanks-Larry

OK; found the fuel test port on the rails. Does anybody know what type
of fitting I would need to hook a hose up to drain the tank?? Thanks in
advance.--Larry

OK; I think I found the answer. Have Kent Moore fuel rail adapter#J34730-75 coming to me. Hopefully it will hook
up and then I can drain the old gas. Larry --Any comments
are welcome

Just a followup; tried the above and it work to perfection. Did not even
have to pull the core in the test port since the fuel came up (volume) at
a good clip. Thanks to RBD for the idea. It is very tight in there so patience is a must. Only problem I had was that the small alligator clip kept falling off the "pump test connector". I will start a new thread with
a question on this connector. Thanks--Larry
P.S. Put fresh 93 octane in and started right up and ran fine.

OK; here is what I came up with. It took a lot of reseach and help from
other discussion boards. FWIW: The connector shown in the picture is
Delco#PT242 GM#12101850 (Female) The Male counter part should be:
Delco#PT220 GM#12101828.(Although not tested and confirmed)
Thanks to all. Larry

P.S. Picture of the connector is on my other post.
