Yes, it has a wire mesh type anti syphon device, if you desperately need to syphon fuel from the vehicle it can be pushed through with the hose pipe, but you may risk blocking the fuel outlet if the mesh falls into the tank.

I have a 2001 3.4l impala. I tried sticking a hose in the tank but it wont go all the way down into the tank for me to siphon. Why is this and whats a easy way to get the gas out? Note: Car runs

Newer cars have valves in the filler tube which are rollover spill prevention and Evap valves which do not allow thicker tubes to enter into the gas tank. See these YouTube links as below which show you to how to Siphon Gas out of the Tank. Good Luck.

Most cars have an anti siphoning device in the filler tube that resembles a screen so you can't put a tube down to be able to siphon gas out of the tank.

Vehicle will only accept fuel at a very low pump rate. It is a 2002 xg350 Hyundai.

there are several things that can cause this. There is a vent hose or the main hose to the tank from the filler that could be kinked, collapsed orr plugged. There may be a emissions valve on the filler neck that is bad too, they are not easy to deal with because the tank should be emptied and the vehicle raised and remove the gas tank. Difficult to do and dangerous due to fire and explosion hazard.

I need to drain gas out of my tank, my daughter put diesel in by mistake, how can i do it? this vehicle has an anti-syphon ball in the tank.

I would try disconnecting the filler hose and see if you can bypass the anti siphon ball by siphoning out of the tank it's self. Most of the time there is a a rubber hose that goes from the filler to the tank its self. If that does not work you may need to remove the gas tank and drain it.

Does the 2004 cavalier have an anti-siphon valve between the filler tube and the gas tank?

not 100% on this but i believe all cars after like 97 have an anti-siphon screen that keeps the tube from entering the gas tank.
