You need to force petrol (gaaas in US terms) through the lines, backwards to 
the normal flow (once disconnected from the tank).
Maybe connect an electric pump to the front of the pipe?
Depends what you have available.
If petrol doesn't flow nicely, you may need a solvent like carb cleaner, but 
watch the effect on the fuel lines.
