Default 92 Bonerville dead w/ Full tank

So I blew the head gasket and bent a piston rod on my Bonnie. How can I get the gas out of the tank before I get rid of the car? I need a simple way too. Your words are appreciated. Thanks.

A siphon hose and a gas can. You can use a clear plastic tube or buy a siphon hose from a auto parts or hardware store.

I read somewhere that there is an anti-siphon thing on there. Is this true?

You could pull the fuel filter and use the pump to pump out the gas.
