Portable Pump

I PURCHASED this last Saturday
And due to the excessive heat
And have been using it multiple times a day to fuel my pair of champion generators from gas cans
To keep the A/C going

I really like this thing and recommend it
Hard to beat for the $10 price

I have no idea about long term reliability
But in 5 days of use, I may have used it more than some people will, in a whole camping season
No more pouring gas, no more spilling gas,
Much easier and neater then holding and pouring heavy gas cans,
I am going to get some polyvinyl clear hose and extend the output hose 2 or 3 feet

Looks pretty handy ! I prefer a jiggle siphon if I can place the gas can on a stationary platform, ABOVE the item I am filling.

I used to have one of those when I had a kerosene heater years ago. If I remember correctly, it worked great for a while and then bit the dust. But you're right. At the $10 price point, it pays for itself in a few uses. I recently bought one of those shaker siphons. I've only used it once but I was able to fill my garden tractor very easily. Shaker Siphon

It's been on my list for a couple years now. I just haven't bit yet. Maybe I will now. Thanks!

I've had one of those for years. Don't even remember how many years. Works great. Still using the original batteries.

Thanks a lot for bringing that pump to my attention!

I just ordered the newest upgraded version from Amazon. I'm tired of getting gasoline on stuff every time I deal with transferring it from cans into machines.

I have use that pump for 3 years, stil working perfectly on the original batteries. Buy a neoprene cork for the outlet.and a rubber chair leg cup for the inlet to keep the bugs out during storage. They can be had for 6 bucks when the price is right on ebay.

Have an almost identical syphon except it's a large squeeze bulb instead of a battery operated pump.

Probably 15yr old. I prefer manual because if it's stuffed in a compartment for months, I don't have to worry about if the batteries are dead.

used one for years. great for filling up riding mower, transferring gas from large container to smaller one, etc. originally got them for kEROSUN HEATERS. daughter uses one for fish/turtle tank.paid closer to $17 however. great price 9.99
also have squeeze bulb model which is a pain but a backup in case batteries die.
