    Any suggestions on hand or battery-powered pump that will empty a 60-litre drum

    Looking for options to empty a 60-litre drum of 98 or E85 ... in a reasonable time - say 2 or 3 minutes max

    Any idea on options ...

    I reckon the ~$17 Bunnings pump with the drill-bit attachment wot I bought to empty Mum's pond would get pretty close; dunno if it's innards are designed to cope with petrol, but I'd expect it to last a while at least.
    They quote 22L/min.

    This guy.

    I just ran it off a 240V drill (can't remember if the 18V didn't have the grunt or if all batteries were flat).
    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

            What about an old fuel pump?

              I use one to transfer acids like citric and also 50% caustic on site. Sometimes I forget to run it in clean water afterwards. Last about a year so suits me fine

                  Push air in. Force fuel out.

                    Yeah this, make a hole big enough for hose and a compressor nozzle. Once itís got a good flow going no need to keep pressurising let gravity do the rest

                      Have a new in box Alemlube 501(if memory serves) that you can have for $100. Not sure about 60 litres, vaguely recall the standpipe is designed for 50 and 200 litre fuel drums.

                        does the "drum" have an anti-siphon cup in the neck?

                          I'd just use a jiggler as above. I like the air compressor idea, could just cup your hand around the drum opening to make it airtight, and force the contents out via a tube of the desired size.

                            This.

                            Would cost $40 from Bursons.
                            .... because every driver experiences the destructive potential of the effortless surge of power available through the smallest of body movements.
