Petrol transfer pump recommendations

Can anyone recommend a pump for transferring petrol from can to tank?

The fuel filler on the boat is not best placed for me to use the jiggle syphon pipe while trying to hold a 20 litre can of petrol high enough to syphon.

I was thinking about a hand operated pump of some type that won't leak petrol all over the deck & tubes?

Yes, I have one, I agree they're good, but looking for something where the can doesn't have to be elevated.

DON'T .... I have a DuraMax fuel tank with the same Flo n Go siphon pump.

The tank is great but after a short while the pump develops leaks through the body and lever - open it up and it is easy to see why !

I eventually changed all the hose for proper fuel pipe along with a shut off ball valve, and use it simply as gravity/siphon feed (all for quayside filling in the greek islands with no nearby petrol source)

Just me two penneth
