I'm not sure if there is a drain plug on the ISX50, so jack up the car and look around. Other than that, you could use a siphon to get most of it out.

Sorry I have fully searched on this site and can't get you a viable answer. You will have to either siphon, access the pump and drain the feed line into a bucket, or take it to a garage.

Get your wife to do it, she put it in there she can siphon it out. It'll be good practice for her

On a serious note, is she tried to start it or drove it then you will need to remove the tank to drain it, flush out the fuel lines and fuel pump, and clean and flush the injectors and motor. You're gonna be looking at about a $600-$750 bill from a service shop to do this.
