Answer: 
I believe you could but you would need to purchase tubing that fits the pump and is long enough to go into gas tank.

Answer: 
Buy longer tubing. What is supplied is good for a lawn mower/snow lower into a gas can. An automobile is going to need longer tubing.

Answer: 
No I would not. Terribly slow moves a couple ounces of fluid with each pump. It does not create a vacumn to give you a steady stream. Pump ceased to operate and leaked, Really useless piece of junk made overseas!

Answer: 
You can certainly try, but I could barely get gas out of a lawnmower. I threw this thing away a long time ago. Product is a good idea, but the hoses just collapsed when suction was applied.

Answer: 
Buy 10 foot vinyl pipe at Home Depot. Put that piping into the liquid and put pump on the other end. Pull the pump a few times to start the flow, then quickly remove the pump before the liquid gets to pump. Of course siphoning requires that the liquid is being moved to a lower spot. You can't siphon uphill. This method will cause siphoning action to begin then there is no need for any more pumping.

I think pump is nice quality with good rubber connections. However, the included piping is too short and kinked.
This method works fine with water but might not be good with strong chemicals because of possibility of unintended splashing.

I also could not get it to siphon. I believe whomever named this item, does not know what a siphon is. This item is simply a pump, not a pump started siphon.

It doesn't siphon. You have to keep pumping, but you would be better off if you replaced the orange hose with clear vinyl hose that you can buy at Home Depot.

Just bought one, and I can understand from reading the reviews that spraying the oil into it is pretty much key to making it work properly. On the unit it says; "Oil- spray light oil into barrel at top nozzle when dry". So someone mentioned cooking spray but what would be the manufacturer recommendation for ideal type of oil to spray in there to ensure long life and top performance of the pump?

Hello - regular use of the siphon pump will help keep it lubricated. in the event you do need to lubricate it, any spray lubricants will work fine. Thank you for your question.

Siphon Pump Kit is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 108.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Meh I think the product description is inaccurate for the product. When I think of a siphon pump, it should be something that pumps to get the flow of liquid going and should then be able to sit back and let gravity do the work. This item is not that, it is only a pump. This left me pumping 27 gallons of diesel fuel about a cup and a half at a time. If you want to physically pump liquid, this product is for you. If you want siphoning to do the work, this is not for you.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A Piece of Garbage I would give it a "0" rating but that isn't an option. I followed the instructions and lubed it with vegetable oil when finished. I used it a total of "3" times before it stopped working. That equates to $4.00 a siphon. I actually say a youtube video where a guy made a siphon with two pieces of hose. One goes in the tank and the short piece of hose also just goes into the top of the tank. I put rag around the top of the tank and blew into the short piece of hose, hence pressurizing that tank and forcing the gas out of the other hose. I am going to try it as it looks simple, like it will work, cheap, and never break. Again, don't waste your money on this piece of garbage.

I bought this to pump the old engine oil out through the dipstick tube of my sailboat's diesel engine. Frankly, the pump was a failure. Two major problems: The intake tube (the thin black tube) was curled tightly enough that I couldn't get it in position in the bottom of the crankcase, and the intake fitting kept loosening and breaking the seal. (I mean, after one or two pump strokes.) I finally managed to get enough of the old oil pumped out, but it was a struggle - and I returned the pump the evening after I bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKED GREAT, BUT This Siphon pumped worked well, but one thing I didn't like was that it was almost impossible to keep the hose straight while siphoning out the gas tank on my motorcycle. Once the level of gas drops and the tip of the hose is sucking air because the hose coils it useless. I found a hard plastic tube to stick into the end of the siphon hose to keep it straight and it worked well. It was sort of like a hard plastic straw that was at least 12 inches long. I only left about 3 inches outside the hose to be my siphon tip.

It works well, just be certain to seat the hoses into the pump or it will leak, and I don't miss the taste of siphoning gasoline...even though my dad always told me, "it won't kill you." Really? If your dad is an "old school wrencher" buy one for both of you and save your taste buds for better things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as expected Used to transfer semi gloss paint from 5 gallon bucket to smaller container. A little harder than thinner liquids but it got the job done. Was able to pull pump completely apart to clean with little effort. Reassembly was just as easy. (Note: pay attention to how the black disc goes if installed backwards it will not work).

I needed to empty a gas tank that was so low I could not siphon it. This pump got 14 gallons of fuel out in only a few minutes pumping. Great for the once I had to have it. Would look for something with better connections if I had to do it more often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great If you follow the instructions you shouldn't have any trouble with this pump. Make sure you spray lubricant ( I used vegetable cooking spray ) into the intake tube (the top tube) and move the pump handle up & down several times, and repeat. Next assemble the pump as instructed ( will vary on your use.....) place top hose into liquid to be pumped and point bottom hose where liquid is to go...when finished clean unit by pumping soapy water through it !! When finished dry everything and re-prime pump with vegetable oil. I believe a lot of these negative reviews are from operator error....you got to be smarter than the equipment you operate !!!
