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!

    Its btw kind of important to clean the tank precisely, because if u left water in the tank and let it dry, the water will evaporate but the sugar is left over as a thin crust.

    Never put water in a fuel tank. If there is dry sugar in there, then use a vacuum cleaner. Remove the filler pipe and vacuum that as well or use water to wash the filler pipe as you really can get it dry.

    The fact that sugar doesn't dissolve in gasoline is why I always called BS when someone said their engine was destroyed by someone adding sugar to their gas. Same with water. To destroy the engine there would be so much water in the tank that any modern engine would already refuse ignition well before anything like a hydrolock can occur. All urban legends...and urban legends

One week when we wasnt there, someone was filled our gasoline tanks full of water. My dad noticed there was something wrong, because he left boats tank's almost empty. That was last summer we kept our boat without camera, what sends picture if someone moves close it. Sorry my bad english.

    @Morthekingz i drive a 2016 318i f30 bmw i love it since it's a 3 cylinder turbo charged engine, i would really recommend it and it's very fuel effincy, it has 134 horsepower but that dosen't matter since my country roads are filled with pot holes and cracks so speed isn't what you are looking for, i also have 16 inch rims to protect my car more. But the look of my car is what matters, i bought a f80 rear bumper+ front bumper and sick spoiler, driving with bright led lights and coded my rear lights to turn on during sunlight, i get alot of stares speically in a third world country like mine.
