I had another go at it last night and it is still as tight as a &@#$. There's stuff all fuel in the tank anyway so I will just undo the fuel line and siphon some of the fuel out. I don't think it is worth possibly damaging the thread on a brand new tank just to remove a few litres of fuel.

Thanks Guys.

went through your folder and its a canadian tank and it will have epoxy like coating on the thread (similar to solder)

Take the tank out of the car and do it out of the car so you can see what your doing mate

This is the tool i used recently to remove the plug from my fuel tank.

It was very tight but this tool allowed me to apply enough force without stripping the square plug.

It is a 1/4 kincrome extension, they have a hex on the end with the 1/4 square female section. I put the ring spanner on it then tapped it onto the plug with a plastic hammer.

With a bit of effort it can out nice and easy.

Pretty sure other brands have the hex. Even if you don't have a hex one, tap it on and put your spanner/shifter on the square end of the extension, it is much harder to strip than the tank plug.
