Removing Greasecar Tank COMPLETELY

Hi guys. I just bought a 03 Jetta with a GreaseCar Spare tire tank. I need to remove the tank for a couple months so I can put my tire back in place. I can't get ahold of greasecar because they are on vacation.
I want to be able to put this system back online eventually. I have disconnected the heater lines on both sides of the tank but the fuel line (PEX) is still connected inside the tank. Once I remove that how can I seal off the lines so I don't leak fuel or coolant. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

The PEX fuel line has a compression fitting on the tank. Drain the PEX fuel line, VO fuel filter (or start with new), solenoid valves, FLHE and VO pump. If you intend to not use VO for a few months, I'd clean/wash all the parts with diesel that VO has contact with to avoid Poly. As far as the engine coolant water, there are plastic plugs that can be used in the engine compartment/heater lines.
