Drill the bottom of the tank, job done lol. Thats what i did with mine when it was written off, Its the insurance companys problem then.

Yes well anyone with half a brain cell would realise that and use a manual drill not a battery powered one!

Thornaby mate. Want to keep it ideally and fix it, but insurance haven't got back to me yet and want to drain it just incase. Where you from?

Is there no 'draining bolt' at the bottom? There was one on my last car (not a Clio).

I have also used a direct live to the fuel pump and ran a pipe from the fuel rail before.

I bet a powered one would be fine. I've heard of people welding full tanks before!
At the same time if insurance are taking it and end up writing it off then tell them it had a full tank and have the amount added to the payout. That's what I did once.
