Does anyone know or can recommend a 12 volt submersible diesel pump currently sold in Australia that I can put down the throat of a Jerry can and pump into the tug? If so, can you provide make/model and selling outlet?

Have you considered the Tanami style set up? Fits to the neck, mouth or what ever of the fuel can, sealed off of course with a car tyre valve and stem in order to pressurise the fuel container. A metal tube also penetrates the sealed cap and extends to the bottom of the fuel can. The fuel delivery tube fits to the metal tube. A "few" pumps of air into the can pressurises the vessel and pushes out the fuel! Not sure where one buys such, plenty have been made though!

Have you considered the jiggle thingie. Just a length of plastic tubing with the brass bit with a marble in it. Costs about $6 - $10 and it really easy to use. Bought mine in market stalls. Just keep the jerry can above the outlet. Insert into jerry can, insert the flow end into tank, jiggle the marble end and voila, easy as pie. I carry two, one diesel and one petrol, and wouldn't be without them.

I am also looking at getting a submersible pump that will fit inside a Gerry can. I have been told Whale pumps are the go but haven't sourced one yet. Have a look at their web site. Site Link .When I get a chance I will call into a boating shop to have a better look. If there is anyone using the whale pumps for diesel I would like to know how good they are and where they purchased them from.

cheers Neil
