Frozen fuel lines

I've recently bought a 1988 RRC and for it's sins, someone's let the fuel tank fill with water. I realised this after I tried to start it with said water, unfortunately this has now filled the fuel lines with said water and they are frozen solid.... Any bright (sensible! lol) ideas on how I could defrost them? Ta!

drop a match into the tank :lol::P

hairdryer would be a sensable option though i guess ;)

Only sensible and workable option I can think of is to get the vehicle in a garage and warm it up that way.

Hair dryer would probably work, but you've only got to miss one bit and you're still stuck, and it would take ages. In this weather I wouldn't be surprised if the first bit you melted would have frozen again by the time you'd got to the other end.
