My daughter (7) was saying yetserday that I smelled like diesel, my wife chimed in, "Diesel IS daddy's cologne!"

Man was I proud! What higher compliment could be bestowed on us diesel tractor and pickup drivin "real men"? Smile

I tell ya' what... it's a good thing I don't have gas truck and tractor, if I was as sloppy with gas as I am with diesel, I'd burst into flames from strong sunlight!

I have these leather, kevlar lined gloves that I use for work and they are just SOAKED with diesel. I have to keep them in the truck bed tool box or the inside of the truck smells like the Exxon Valdez.

I need to get another pump for my 55 gallon drums, the one I had was leaking and now it died. It had some leakage at the top from the gasket and now it hardly pumps. That's where I got much of the diesel on ALL the work clothes I own. It was a cheapo pump anyway. I think I'll just get a rotary or crank hand type, mine was the "bicycle pump" style.

What's better? Spend some time mucking out the stalls with your fel, add that aroma to good ol' bovine gold, and your diesel, and then you'll know pure olfactory bliss. Especially when your honey is getting a meal ready and you waltz in, and say, as you draw her close, "...hey Babe, what's for....?" Nothing like the sweet smell of dead dinos and freshly recycled vegetation!

Lawman, after many years of experimenting with, and cursing at, every type of fuel pump I could find I finally found the (IMHO) best one.

Air, compressed air actually.

Use the hose from an old pump and screw together a couple of pipe fittings and a piece of 1" pipe so that when it's inserted in the 'bung' hole the pipe falls just shy of the bottom of the drum. Take a drill to the vent plug and using a tap make threads in it to accept a $5 air pressure regulator, or just a schrader valve. A little air pressure on the drum and the fuel flows nicely.

Best of luck.

Northern Tool has a couple of real nice electric fuel pumps with gas station type dispensing nozzles. I got the 12 volt version. No drips or spills and at 10 GPM.... very fast.

We used compressed air for all of our Baja racing fuel tanks. We would carry 55 gal drums of racing fuel in the support truck and we had a dip tube with a fuel hose/nozzle that would screw into the 2" bung opening. A second threaded cap would allow us to tap air from our on-board compressor to have full fuel flow. It does not take much air pressure. I would certainly limit the pressure to less than 5 PSI for most things. That should allow you to pump fuel at least ten feet above the barrel.

For the Baja racing, we would start the flow of fuel with air pressure and the fuel would siphon down to the race car with the flow enhanced by the pressure in the drum.

This is the fuel dispensing pump I have on my refuel rig. I am very happy with it and it does not leak. I moves fuel at a very fast pace for a hand pump and is much less expensive and simpler than an electric pump.

That's one reason why I keep driving a "gas" truck to keep away from pumping so much diesel. If you spill it on yourself, you throw away the clothes. I've tossed so many pair of gloves. If you spill it on the Rhino bed liner it will melt it. And, If you live in California the diesel fumes will cause cancer! Anyway, that's what my safety label says. Apparently, we're safe outside California.

That's a nice hand pump. The other ideas are good but I think for my needs, hand crank will do.
