Draining the tank. S3

Is there a way with vcds to make it transfer the “other side” of the tank over?

in engine on output tests I activated the fuel pump and drained it down to 1/4 on the gauge but now it’s stopped and I can only assume the passenger side of the tank still has fuel in it.

i wanted to drain it because it’s been sat for 2yrs and I’d rather put some fresh v power in now it’s back on the road

edit: in instruments I have the measuring blocks fuel sender 1 and 2. Both are reading 0.0L, but the gauge reads the start of the red...

Weirdly now my gauge is reading empty. Must of been the cycling of the ignition or something that zero’d it

Remove rear bench, remove pumps & check with a torch.

Pretty sure the tank is empty now so using the output test must transfer it from 1 side to the other. New fuel filter and some fresh v power tomorrow. Cheers.
