Have a large freezer
size zip lock handy and some absorber or just plain paper towels. Use a shaker siphon. When you take the siphon hose out of the can, hold a paper towel around the hose and pull it through your hand. The paper towel will absorb the small amount of diesel
on the hose. Coil it up and place in the zip lock bag. Place some paper towels in the bag to absorb any excess fuel still in the hose. Zip it closed. If you want, put the first one in another Zip lock for dual protection. This is what I do and have no spills, no diesel
small and it is clean and neat. I also use disposable nitrile gloves when using this system and dispose of them in a zip lock bag. When I get to a suitable disposal facility, all of it is disposed of off the boat.
