Remove the gas cap and the hose going into the fuel pump. the gas should be able to siphon out on its own without any restrictions. From there you can blow into the fuel line to possibly clear out any junk on the fuel pickup sock and check the fuel line for any kinks. Its possible for a bad fuel hose from the tank to the hard line also. There is also a tank breathing system that could be an issue. I would suggest a repair manual to check that.
