Super Siphon

While at the Solihul Raly in Moab this year, I spent about $10 on a 6' piece of 1/2" hose with a little brass thingy at the end called a "Super Siphon". I read a write up about it once and it said to jiggle it up and down a few times and the liquid would flow (something like 3.5 gallons a minute). No sucking involved. The other day I was running on fumes, so I pulled over and decided to give it a go. I stuck one end in the Jerry Can mounted on the tire carrier and the other end in the gas tank and jiggled it up and down a few times and PRESTO! liquid began to flow immediately.

It is a small thing, but I was REALLY IMPRESSED and I am going to get more--at least one for each vehicle, but two for the D90 (one for fuel, one for water that you may want to drink).

I bought mine from Pangea Expedition, and I have seen them at Expedition Exchange as well. I have met both companies and like them both very much.

I have no stake in this product, nor in those companies. I was just impressed, and hell, for the price of a few beers, it is well worth it.

Bought one at "Pep-Boys" a few months back.... no idea how I ever lived without it, I use it all over the house these days. Filling the lawn mower from the gas can, putting anti-freeze from buckets into water jugs, draining my fish tank......

VERY handy to have.

For $9 you really can't beat what it does.

jp---I know this sounds foolish, but I do think that way. If I pay too much attention to one of the rovers, the others get pissed. It is true. My only 3 cars (trucks) are an '88 RRC, '00 DII, and the D90. Right now the D90 is running better than ever since I spent a lot of time on him, but the DII is leaking coolant like mad and the RRC is awaiting the 3.9 transplant that used to be in the D90. They rotate who runs best, and if I wash one, the others get very finicky!
