Do you reckon this would last long enough

If you fixed it to a reasonable piece of wood so you could stand on it, then 2 lengths of hose either end?

fuel syphon

I bought one of these at the boat show a couple of years ago and all I can say is they are cheap and work really well, just get the jerry can above the tank give it a quick shake then leave it to syphon in on its own, it takes about two mins to drain a jerry can

Don't these rely on gravity as well. The boat with all the fuel on will be lower than the Jerry cans I have to fill. So it will have to pump upwards.

Yes they do - that's your problem!!!

Personally I would give one of the diesel transfer pumps a go from machine mart - they often have them in the clearance section - they come with a proper hose and trigger nozzle.

They are NOT rated for petrol though - prob the makers being over cautious but remember petrol is a solvent so may damage seals etc - MAY.....

I'd go for a fuel pump that's designed for petrol (ie one from a car or a bike). They're not super fast, but at around 25 gallons an hour it wouldn't be too bad.

There's a good deal on a Facet 40105 here and I'm sure that someone would buy it off you for a reasonable amount if you only wanted to use it once.
