You need to do what Kashul said above. You don't want to do anything with the existing gas in the system. You particularly don't want to pump it, so don't to turn the car on - anything that isn't already gummed up will be after you try to start it. You can't rebuild the injection pump yourself but you probably can rebuild the fuel pump yourself. You bought a car that is expensive to restore. Everything about it is expensive. I'm happy to sell you some expensive Kangol parts for your seat belts. The air suspension and the fuel injection are the most complicated and most expensive and you can't do those yourself.
