Cheapo Petrol Siphon
« on: July 20, 2011, 03:57:19 am »
To avoid the risk of sucking petrol into your lungs (SERIOUSLY bad news!), get a piece of small bore pipe, like fuel tubing, thread a piece of string through it, and tie it onto a small piece of sponge rubber. Pull the sponge rubber just into the end of the tube and push that end into the tank. Pull the string gently through the tube, and the sponge rubber makes a good enough seal to draw the petrol up the tube.
