Got one of these for taking the fuel out of the boat at the end of season or transferring some into the lawnmower in season. Works great; yes, it's a bit slow; yes, there's no trigger lock; yes, it's expensive; but yes, it's one of the safer ways of moving fuels. I've tried syphons, low cost hand pumps...they were all junk. They either leaked, broke, couldn't be started or were a downright safety hazard in spite of what the blurb stated. Flow rate wouldn't have rivalled pissing in a bottle either.
