I have a 96 Cherokee that I just picked up as an engine donor for the wife's 96, and it came with a full tank of gas. I need to pump the fuel out of the tank, is there a way to jumper the fuel pump relay so I can use it to drain the tank?

Worked great. Pulled the Schrader valve out of the fuel rail and put a length of heater hose clamped onto it, ran off into a gas can. Took the time to wire up a toggle switch with two wires with spade terminals on the ends, pulled the fuel pump relay, used a meter to find the power side of the plug, the one opposite the power one was to the pump. Turned on the toggle switch and away it went. What sucked is all I have is a one gallon metal can, dang squirrels chewed holes in all the plastic ones I had that were bigger.
