12-volt Portable Transfer Pumps

Tuthill FR1614

    These portable 12-volt transfer pump systems from Tuthill are ideal around the farm, garage, or shop, can pump diesel and light oils with no problem, and don't cost near as much as most transfer pumps on the market...

 I recently picked one up for minimal use around the garage (I like to accumulate used engine oil and other fluids in bulk, rather than have to empty those 15-quart oil pans frequently). With plastic hoses and a 10-GPM pump, I wouldn't recommend one of these systems for commercial use though. It's just a budget-friendly way to transfer fuel and oil. This system ran me just $150 and you can often find similar kits on sale at your local Farm and Home Supply, Tractor Supply, Big R, Rural King, etc...

 *I'm also considering this as my saving grace on doomsday, when I might have no other choice but to run everything but gasoline through my fuel tank...
