check the float on the sending unit inside the tank. either drop the tank or look for Steve83's write up on cutting out the floor and making an access plate.

I got the kit from Steve83 but I haven't had the time or nerve to cut the hole yet. I already marked where I need to cut, so all I have to do is cut it.

What did you use to cut it with?

The only thing I have to cut it with is a jigsaw I recently bought for another project.

a dremel tool or a grinder with a cutting plade will work. Depending on how much space there is a saw zaw might just fit and would be the easies probably.

I actually cut mine with a jig saw and it cut just fine. As long as you have a good blade it would work pretty good. I was going to use a angle grinder with a cut off wheel but I was a little to afraid to make sparks around the fumes because I was in a garage...that and it wasn't my house either. It would still probably be easier with a angle grinder, but if all you have to use is a jig saw it is very do-able.

EDIT: Just for the record I had my tank off and there where some fumes and the gas lines where pretty close to where I would be making sparks...
