I used the diesel pump for the first time yesterday. It worked very well. I had some diesel in five gallon cans. Because of the length of the pickup screen, the pump won't empty any container below the top of the pickup. It starts to suck air. At the nozzle this is indicated by mist. That's no problem with a small container because I was easily able to empty the remaining diesel into another container. With a larger drum, it will never empty the drum. That really won't be a problem because I'll continue to purchase additional diesel for two tractors.
Storing the pump and the hoses can be a problem. There is a six inch wide ledge around the barn. I put the hose with the pickup filter into a six feet long section of two inch PVC pipe with a loose cap on one end and placed that against the wall of the barn. It's secured by two 16 penny finishing nails to hold it against the wall and allow easy removal. The two feet long section of flexible hose is in a loop. The pump is held onto the ledge with a small bungee cord. The remaining flexible output hose is looped across the motor toward the end of the PVC pipe, the nozzle is in a plastic bag, and is attached to the wall with a bungee cord. The open end of the PVC pipe is closed with a rag to keep debris or insects out.
