    Some of your parts stores will have a big syringe that looks like a grease gun. Don't know whether it is approved for gasoline or not.

    The one I got at HF looks like a grease gun without the lever on the side. It is not rated for gasoline.

    I like just adding some Stabil, running the machine for a while to get it into the carb, then calling it a winter. The Stabil-ized gas in the carb won't gum up, the seals won't dry out, and condensation won't form in the carb (or tank - keep it full). Plus, you can forget the siphons and pumps. YMMV.

    Just recently purchased a silent generator [img]/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]. Two hours after I received it and started using it (after 11 +days w/o power) the electricity arrived [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]. When I reviewed the Storage procedures it indicated the use of a hand pump.

    After a little leg work these are my findings...Hope they are useful to you.

    A couple inexpensive varieties of fuel hand pumps can be found at:
    http://plumbing.hardwarestore.com/52...phon-pump.aspx (several models)

    but from the list above, the 3 below are specifically for use with fuels.

    Other possible sources for fuel dispensing hand pumps are your local autoshops, marine suppliers and tractor or farm equipment stores.

    Thanks you for doing so much work looking for these pumps. The cheap &lt;$10 pumps are what I am looking for. Now I just need to find who carries them around me. I can't imagine mail ordering something that will double its price with shipping.

    </font><font color="blue" class="small">( So where can I get an inexpensive pump for gasoline? I did a search and the cheapest thing I could find was $130. I am looking for something to transfer about 1 gal a couple times a year.
