I'm assuming you have a W-22 Workhorse chassis, with a 3 port filter or the adapter. If so, the fuel pump is in the tank, and the filter is above the rear axle inside the driver side frame rail. I've never actually done this, but I don't see why you can't disconnect the line going from the filter back to the tank (the other filter outlet goes to the engine) and attach a hose there to pump the fuel into a container or drum. The pump will run as soon as key is turned to "on"; I see no need to start the engine, but that MAY be necessary to keep the pump running IF
it shuts off without the motor running.
Please let us know if or how well this idea works
