    Default battery operated portable gas can transfer pump works well!

    I purchased this Terapump off amazon, found it works very well, so I'm just passing it on, I have no interest in the product other than as a consumer

    Thanx. Interesting... I could use this, and it's surprisingly less $ in Canada (Amazon.ca) because it includes the adapters.

    To be really useful to me, it would have to suck most of the fuel from a Rune.
    I assume the intake end wont go far into the Rune tank, and there will be a check valve (aka foot valve) at the bottom of the intake.

    I wonder if it would be possible to add a short hose to the intake...

    Well I'm not sure this will work for you, it is designed to be used in a tightly closed gas can. It comes with a few different sized screw on gas can caps to fit most gas cans. I think I read one of the reviews of someone trying to pump from the gas tank to a gas can, and it did not work

    However, maybe this would serve you better, I ordered this as well but has not arrived yet, for that purpose:

    OK, thanx.
    So the US one DOES come with the adapters...

    Most of the time I would use it for its intended purpose but if it can't suck out of the Rune tank, I'll buy a cheap version of a pump that can.

    I like to keep my bike tanks full over the winter (with stabilized, non corn fuel) but wish to drain and re-fill the bikes I'm not riding, each spring.

    So the pump from Northern Tool arrived, it can pump from any container including your bike's gas tank, it's quiet and comes with a regular gas station type nozzle, squeeze the hand grip and gas flows and let go then flow stops, very slick, very well made

    I adapted the suction end of the hose (garden hose fitting) with a piece of smaller flexible hose (garden drip line supply hose) that I used to pump from a 5 gal can, and can be used to also drain the bike's gas tank
