Oil floats. Hook up a bulb at the filter housing, and pump several gallons out, GTG!

Hell it's an LB7, the injectors are probably already on their way out...

Fill it full of fuel and put some power service in it. Good to go.

A primer bulb. For that matter, disconnect the out line after the filter and pump the stock primer about 94,387 times.

The only thing that would concern me would be the sugar in the punch. It can carbonize in the cylinders and lock up the engine. Its such a small amount you may be fine. I know my principle had his truck engine ruined with sugar in the tank when I was in school. But the kids put a whole 5 lb. bag in the tank. So such a small amount may not hurt anything.

I wouldn't filter it and re use it, im not sure a filter is going to catch the fruit punch , if you had a filter set up with a water seperator i might just fill it and run the truck

Step one: buy a cheap bulb at wal-mart/auto parts store. One of the cheapie siphon type deals.

Step two: get worm clamp

Step three: unhook the incoming fuel line to the fuel filter housing.

Step four: hook suction side of barbed bulb assembly to incoming fuel line, attach with worm clamp.

Step five: manipulate bulb until foreign contents are removed from fuel tank, then reverse steps!

It works because fuel is drawn from close to the bottom of the tank, and oil floats; therefor your hawaiian punch is at the bottom if the tank.
