fuel tank surprise

I was inspecting my fuel tank the other day, and noticed that I actually have a drain plug at the bottom of the fuel tank, much like the fill plug on the diff. Does everyone else have that? That may be nothing to the average joe, but I thought that was the coolest thing ever! That is a automotive engineer thinking about expedition needs and worst case scenarios!

I was always wondering how I would drain the tank if I ever left my body and mistakenly put gas in the tank, now i have an easy solution.

NAS 110s have drain plugs. NAS 90s do not Tank size is also different, and unfortunately you can't put a 110 tank in a 90

Hate to say it, but the "gas" mistake actually happened to me a few years back. I'm use to the diesel pumps in San Diego having green nozzles. I was driving through LA, and my mind must've been on auto as I was fueling up. I just picked up a green nozzle, and started filling up. It wasn't until I finished that I realized that the diesel nozzles up there are yellow! Luckily I found a garage nearby that allowed me to dump all the fuel - out the drain plug. I'm paranoid now, and always look for the pump that "says" DIESEL.

BTW, my 110 use to belong to Chris. Can't Thank You enough for selling it to me.

I know it's just a matter of WHEN, not IF that happens to me...
