Yes, all the fuel in the line will come out but not the whole tank full of gas. Under 8oz. will come out. It is under some pressure so point it away from you.

are you trying to drain the tank or just trying to replace the filter?

Depending on the various heights you might start a siphon and will empty the tank, just not fast.

there's a allen type screw on rear passanger side of tank, undo it and tilt car from front driver side.
