transfering fuel

Laser Jiggle Siphon Hose 20mm x 1.75m | Fluid Extraction | Screwfix.com

bought one of these for toping up my tank from a can when needed i was amazed how quick it empties a 25lt fuel can without spills would be loads better that filling with a funnel epecially in a swell.

it's a real moment of discovery isn't it?

We refer to the normal one as a tosssers tube (or a Fullers Fueler after our friend John Fuller) the larger size we always called a Dirks Deliverer

such a clever and simple idea.

Yes one of the better inventions.

"The Gippo's Fuel Card"

I keep one on board and often transfer over 200L in a few minutes with it. Legend.

Those jiggly things won't pump water out of your bilge though-will they?
Doesn't it depend on your "in" being higher than your "out"?
Cant get on with them myself.
I am either too impatient, thick, stupid or a combination of all three.
I've tried putting the jiggler thing nearest the "in"-tried putting it nearer the "out". Nothing works so gave up. Still have it though in case any smart person who is crewing with me can understand it.
MUCH prefer one of these:
Fluid Buddy 12v Submersible Pump | FAST Del | CTS2044 | BEST Prices |

Works every time and transfers any liquid.

Brian - there's a possibility your jiggle may be faulty. Mine didn't work at first - then I spotted a nip in the hose where it attached to the brass case. It allowed air into the hose above the valve and thus didn't function. A bit of silicone sorted that.

There's a knack to using them, but mine shifts as much fuel per minute as your 12v pump.

The Knack:
Keep the fuel container as far above the hose outlet as possible
Start the valve high in the fuel container
Drop the hose further in once flow is established
Don't let the valve touch the bottom of the tank until it is almost finished

Mine didn't either-the spring behind the ball was way too strong and made it hard to start the siphoning action.
Busting the spring made it a lot easier, and the transfer speed increased an awful lot too.

Doesn't transfer petrol. IT's VERY dangerous to transfer petrol by a pump not rated to carry it.
Bear in mind that petrol when pumped generates static, so if your tank at either end isn't earthed you've potentially got a very nasty problem.

Basically, if your jiggle is broken, it won't Twerk.
