Beckson 109PC Siphon-Mate Specialty Transfer Pump
Safety experts caution against the unsafe practice of siphoning petroleum by mouth, warning specially, that it can result in loss of life.
Beckson`s answer is the patented Siphon-Mate pump; a combination displacement lift pump and siphon pump with valves suitable for transferring fuel.
Pump half strokes to start the flow. Once flow begins, fully extending the handle will allow siphoning provided that the source is higher in elevation than the receptacle.

Safety Usage Guide for Flammable Liquids:
Please be careful. The major dangers in storing or handling flammable liquids are those of fire and explosion. Containers should be grounded if made of conductive material and should not be near sources of sparks, open flames or hot surfaces. The container should be kept in an area where spillage (liquid or vapors) will not flow to an ignition source. DO NOT ALLOW SMOKING IN THE AREA. Be sure to provide adequate ventilation to prevent the concentration of fumes. Remember, fumes of flammable liquids are highly explosive. Fire extinguishers of the proper type to handle Class B fires and of proper size and quantity to handle the potential hazard should be readily available. Water is generally not suitable as an extinguisher of a Class B fire. Ensure means of safe disposal of any spillage before transferring. Liquids should only be transferred to an appropriate tank. If such a container is conductive then it should be connected to the container with a grounding strap to prevent static electric spark.
