What’s good? This is a sim­ple, hand-op­er­ated fuel pump which I use pri­mar­ily for trans­fer­ring race fuel from a 25-litre drum to a mix­ing jug, and also for drain­ing out my race bike’s tank when rac­ing is fin­ished for the day. It works by plac­ing one end in the fuel tank and the other in the petrol can and squeez­ing the rub­ber hand bulb to work up some vac­uum pres­sure be­fore al­low­ing the fuel to flow via grav­ity. It’s sim­ply de­signed and func­tional, and much bet­ter than other cheap syphons be­ing sold in the pad­dock – which often leak af­ter just a few uses.

What’s not? The pump bulb is quite sturdy, which is good for build qual­ity but does mean that you need a strong hand and a firm pump­ing ac­tion to gen­er­ate a vac­uum.
