doubt there would be an OE device fitted.

you can get them, of course, but i can only find after market devices. If you truely have one, there is a plug under the rear seats that releases fuel.

there is a thread here about how to find and get to it too. will update when i find it! (if you dont beat me to it that is)

not yet no. the thread i was one about was for a 307.

There must be some sort of release system somewhere tho. Have you tried looking in a haynes manual for some info? (even if you have to buy it! Laughing)

found this doing a google search...hope it is right!!!

meant to say that the access for the fuel pickup is under the rear seats and covered with a large plastic grommet

I have drained hundreds of tanks due to the workshop being on a forecourt, as stated lift the back seats and unscrew the pump/gauge unit then place a pipe in the tank and syphon out as much as possible, fill the tank with the correct fuel to the top.
The vehicle will be fine a small amount left in will not cause you any problems.
