Fuel Siphon

I am looking to get a fuel siphon pump, there seems to be a ton of options out there and most have terrible reviews. Anyone have one that they are happy with. I am looking for something simple for occasional use to transfer unused gas from summer toys and yard equipment to the snow blower.

harbor freight has them cheap.

however, you want to keep every thing full of fuel to avoid condensation in the tank.

I use this one so does wink I believe

you put it in and shake it up and down a few times and it does its thing

tho i forgot the name and where i got it. I think autozone

go time traveler style and go back in time, fuck his grandma, then shoot forward in time and then fuck his mom. Then return back to present state and call him a the product of two incest whores and hes your son and show video of you plowing the both members of his family. .

Like Jason said, a plain piece of rubber hose works fine. We have one of those jiggle siphon hose things hanging right next to the plain old rubber hose at the shop and I always go for the plain hose.

So with the plain hose, do you suck the fuel to get it flowing?

yep,

hold the end with your hand and have your thumb covering the end, one quick pull on the hose starts it then you cap it off with the thumb so you dont end up with a mouthful of fuel, point it to where you want to transfer to and release the thumb and it starts right up

Thanks. I think I'll try the $10 jiggle thing as I know I will be swallowing some 87 octane if I try it the old fashioned way.

Worse case scenario, remember to spit and not swallow with the regular plain hose
