Fill-Rite Rotary Hand Pump, Model# FR112NT
This works exactly as described. I was even able to retrofit it to siphon fuel from car fuel tanks albeit at a slower rate, it still beat siphoning by mouth. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was the high price, and the fact that the paint does start to peel fast.

Fill Rite solves problem.
As the owner of several diesel machines and vehicles, I included a transfer tank topped by a Fill Rite 12 volt pump when I replaced my old pick- up. I had daily experience with Fill Rite' value and dependability.
When I brought home a compact diesel tractor for yard work, I was faced with the problem of refueling. I could not count on the availability of the truck so I assembled a fuel dolly based on a 20 gallon drum.
I finished the project with a Fill Rite rotary pump and problem solved. There are two important reasons that this particular pump has been a success. First of all, I am storing the fuel in my garage and you all know what leaky diesel fuel can smell like. The pump is particularly clean and drip free, The second reason has been determined by the relatively small size of the tractor's tank and fill neck. This pump gives me perfect controll, especially when almost full. I never spill fuel on the garage floor. That's important in the confines of an attached garage.
I made the right choice with this pump and expect years of dependable service

Tuthill Rotary Hand Pump, Model# FR112NT
Although it works as advertised for gasoline, the red paint runs when in contact with gas. Additionally, the feature that allows back pumping the fuel out of the hose so it doesn't drip, requires a 3/4th inch plug with a shoulder and o-ring. This should be provided with the unit, but is not. Otherwise the pump installs easily, and works great.

works easily hand fuel pump
My husband loves it except, we can't seem to get the fuel hose not to continue to leak diesal fuel. It seems to siphon just a little from the diesal tank. So we have to prop the fuel hose straight up in the air. Since this is located outside and we don't want rain to collect in the fuel hose. So we have to cover the fuel hose to prevent water from getting in. If it wasn't for this problem, we really like the pump and is easy to use and seems to pump quickly to fill our tractor's fuel tank etc.

Rotary Hand Pump
I purchased one of these a few months ago - best one we've ever owned/used. I heat my factory with a used oil burning furnace and most pumps we previously used (including compressor lung pumps) have not permormed nearly as well as this handly little instrument. Thanks for making my job easier and saving me money too !

Tuthill Rotary Hand Pump, Model# FR112NT
It was a very easy and quick setup. The pump even came with the thread sealing tape. I purchased this out of my hotline magazine on sale and free shipping! I would buy again if I had the need for another.

I service a fleet of diesel trucks and finally made the decision to buy oil by the drum to cut down on cost so I needed a pump and I am very happy I went with this one, very good construction goes together in minutes, easy to use and pumps nice and fast. It is also very accurate so you can tell how much you have put in 10 revs = 1 gal. Great hand pump at a decent price.

Was purchased for a disel fuel tank, 275 gallon. Well only had mine for a couple of years. Just like my friend, who has had one on the fuel barrel on his farm for the last 50 or 60 years. Works just great. Like a Sherman tank.

Review Tuthil Rotary Hand Pump
This pump seemed to be of very high quality. I was tired of pouring oil out of a can and buying in bulk quantity cut some of my oil costs. Use of this pump was easy and eliminated the mess that accompanies transferring oil.
