Fuel jug pump?
Im just wondering,what happens to a hand fuel pump that is designed for nitro, but is used for Gas?
Does it just slowly break down the plastic inside it?

Yes definitely..Also your fuel line has to be gas tubing also. I went through 2 fuel pump already and because the hand pump says for nitro or gas fuel doesnt mean its that. Get one thats design just for gas fuel.

Hi Gorn:

This is what I use with great success:

http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...01p?Q=&I=LXJGS3

You MUST change out the silicone tubing for Tygon tubing to use it with gas (the actual pump can take gas or nitro). Since you should be setting up your new gasser with Tygon tubing anyway, order an extra two feet to use with this setup. Since I fly camper fuel, this model attaches right to the can and makes life alot easier. If you don't want to use the can, just get the pump without the mount.

No moving parts to contaminate your fuel, or plug your carb.

Simple basic and quick : Airpressure.

Gasser fuel pump
I have used the Dave Brown Six-Shooter for years.It's not the fastest,but it is trouble free and dependable.Only one piece of tygon tubing to change every two or three years.No leaks!

Is that just an air pump?
I take it that it pressurises the fuel jug, forcing fuel out?
Do you use a filtered clunk line in the jug still?
How fast does it fill your tank?
Very interesting.

Where on the web can I see on of those?

Tower hobbies carries them.The main catalog doesn't show it,but you can even get the repair kit for it.The same pump is used for gas or glow-only the gas model uses tygon instead of silicone.

Yup
One or two strokes, unfold the blades. Have a scratch and she's dribbling on the table.It's a old Dubro tire pump or volley ball pump.

No filter, steril fuel jug, sterile ozark can, steril carb screen,

fill through this which does have a screen, looked once it was clean, never looked since.
