Removing sugar from tank (2002 Honda Civic)

How do I get sugar out of the tank

Remove the gas tank, drain the sugary gas, flush the tank, reinstall.

Or run the tank down a bit, change the fuel filter and don’t worry about it. Sugar in the gas tank won’t do the harm people think it does. Unless, of course, someone poured 10, 20 or 50 lbs into the tank. Then do what I posted in the first paragraph.
