Triumph Spitfire - Draining the Fuel

Some non-gasoline fluid has gotten into the gas tank and I need to drain it. Does anyone know how to do this on a 1973 spitfire?


siphon as much as you cn till tank is empty,
disconect outlet end of fuel pump, turn over engine till line empty, add some clean fuel to tank, bounce car to slough fuel and siphon and turn over engine, reconnect line and add new gas. What you do to get rid of the old gas that up to you
