Its doubtful that a fuel tank has a drain..BUT, being a diesel.. it could???,, crawl under your truck and look,, it will/should be at the LOWEST point in the tank.. (other wise it would not drain out!)
If fuel tanks had a drain... just think how quick thieves would empty the tanks.. :)

Water in 2005 Nissan Pathfinder gas tank yet to start car or turn key over yet. How do I drain fuel tank of everything?

If the tank does not have a drain plug, you could syphon the fuel from the tank from the filler tube, or disconnect the fuel line at the intake and use the pump to discharge the fuel into a container before it gets to the injectors. Water mixed with fuel should not damage the pump.
And there is no filter in the line, only a screen before the pump inside the tank.
Using the pump in the tank would require you to jumper the pump relay to keep it pumping.

Hi I am working on a 1991 nissan pathfinder and it is not getting any gas. I put a new fuel pump and a new fuel filter and changed the fuel pump relay, But still no gas. you can hear the pump kick on. and...

Disconnect ( or at least loosen) the fuel line as close to the engine fuel delivery system as you can and see if there is fuel pressure. You may have a vapour lock. If you do get pressure how much ? Is it sufficient to supply your requirements. A "new fuel pump" does not always mean a "good fuel pump" - from experience!!! If you do not have fuel at the engine work back to each fuel line connection to were there is fuel pressure if at all. I am not a Nissan expert but the principles are the same for all. You do not say if it is fuel injected or carburated. FI requires higher pressures than carbs. Hope this helps. Let me know how you do in your efforts. Thanks Good luck.

The fuel level sensor is at fault and is setting the service engine soon light on. Your local Nissan dealer can repair this under warranty depending on your mileage. The fuel tank will need to be removed to access the sending unit.
