Looks like I'll be spending the morning humping Jerries...again, and again, and again...

Where are all the folk who say "You're so lucky..." now!? LOL

i think mine is 15liters a minute,but make sure it is rated for fuel transfer,as diesel wrecks the valves on a normal water pump......don't ask me how i know!

You're so lucky!
I SO wish I was in your shoes, or boat.

Gotta be better than having to get up and go to the office every day.

Then again, if at any point you're not happy, I would be glad to trade places with you. lol
