I like this one

I recently got this one. It is 2.5 gallons and a little easier to haul around. I never burn more than 2.5 gallons in one session. It has really cool switches! The price is good too.

Im using Jersey Fueler but its overpriced IMHO. I wonder if a boxer fuelpump would work with a regular jerry can?

I thought about the boxxer too JKRU ,,but the add says ,,may cause fire if used on gas or diesel fuel ,, you try one and let me know ....
There has to be a cheaper setup ...for us tight butts.

Jersey Fueler. Greg left the link to the site above.

jkru, the boxer idea ain't half bad and might just work with Jet A1 or kero. I just re-wired one of my Slimline boxer's the other night and had my first chance to see how they work.....cool. 3 cylinders inside a captive race with the fuel line woven between them. Nothing ever touches the fuel....just the cylinders pulsing the fuel through the tubing...and virtually nothing to wear out.

Fuel pumps

I use both hand and electric, I have found that the electric tends to pressurise the system and in some cases will leak past worn parts ( fuel pumps, cut off valves, the hand pump ( Vario gas ) takes a lot longer but gives me time to look over my machine whilst I am pumping

Peter Rob,
Excellent point and, actually, I have one of each, both Jersey Refuelers and both suit their intended purpose exceedingly well.

jkru, I've got three of the Slimlnes and have had them in service now for over three years with nary a hiccup. Only gripe I ever had was that I felt the wiring running to the motor was a bit on the light side, thus the reason for opening them up and replacing the light wiring with silicone insulated 14 guage.

Kavan metal Geared

Kavan Geared 12v Fuel Pump £22.50

Works fine for me just filter both sides.

Use a standard clunk filter in the 20lts container and a plastic type petrol card filter on output so if pump failed is protected.

I know you are in England but...

I had to show you guys this one. I liked the Jersey fueller, but $200 for a fuel can!!!!!

An old Chlorine can holds 2 1/2 gallons. The pump is from Tam and used to pump gasoline but is happy with kerosene.

The batteries are those naf 1200maH Nicads that turbine manufacturers sell you so you can buy 3300NiMH to replace them and the switch came out of my junk box. The only part I bought was the banana connector from Radio Shack.

So far it has pumped 10 gallons on one charge.

Now all I have to do is to ship one of those empty fuel chlorine cans to England so I can make another one.

Peter thats a very good effort for a fuel station. Everyone on this forum has probably built their own heli so it should not be beyond most peoples skill to manufacture their own fuel station although its less hassle to go out and buy one?
