Transfer a 5 gallon container of gas in less than 1 ½ min, without any dripping. Also good for transferring diesel, paint, or oil. Safely transfer gas to your boat, Jet Ski, or even your lawnmower without the danger of spilling. Empty out the bilge, or the bottom of your boat, with just a few quick shakes to start the siphoning. Around the house you can easily transfer liquids from aquariums, clogged up sinks or tubs, fish ponds, or to empty out your Jacuzzi. Just drop the pump end, which works like a check valve, into whatever liquid you want to siphon and snap the hose up and down a few times to start the flow. (NOTE: The "siphon-from" container MUST be higher than the "siphon-to" container.) As you snap the hose down into the liquid, the check valve allows the liquid in the hose, but not back out. When enough liquid gets into the hose, the Super Siphoning effect takes over ... Just lower the end of the hose into your container and the liquid starts flowing!

I use them to put gasoline into my other vehicles. When I accumulate enough Giant Eagle gas rewards that I can get free gasoline (up to 30 gallons), I fill up my car (~14-15 gallons) and then fill up three 5-gallon gas containers. Then when I get down near empty, I use a couple of those 5-gallon gas containers and one of these siphons to add the gas quickly and easily to my car (it sure beats holding the gas container up to fill up the tank).
Here is how I do it, more specifically:
1 - place cardboard on trunk (or roof) of car to protect paint
2 - lift 5-gallon gas container/gascan onto cardboard (keep cap on, in case you don't keep it level while lifting it up there)
3 - take off gas cap
4 - insert siphon (plastic end) into gas opening of vehicle
5 - insert other siphon end (metal end) into gas can/container
6 - shake siphon (metal end in the 5-gallon gas container) mildly to vigorously until the gas travels into the siphon and passes below the level of bottom of the gas container (this is how siphon then allows gravity to take over).
7 - as gas can gets relatively low, I tilt it towards me (so that there's a low end that gas will sit on) and I also hold the siphon to point to the side that is lower (while tilted) to pick up that gas
8 - once it sputters and finishes, I lift gas can (still has siphon in it) down to the ground
9 - then I remove the siphon from vehicle, still leaving other (metal-end) in the gas can, and I shake it a little and give it time to drop any last few drips back into the container
10 - then put everything away
These instructions may seem silly, but I had a friend for whom I bought these siphons and he was doing things strangely and spilling gas in his garage until I showed him, step-by-step, how I do it. For those of you who might need them or take advantage of them, I provided them so that you can follow them while you get used to the routine/order of things, and I am sure you're not alone.
I'm sure these siphons work pretty well for many other applications, but I only use them for siphoning gas from my gas cans into my vehicles and they work great for that purpose.
The quality of the hose is very good. It's nice and thick, not flimsy. It also does not kink easily and has a copper end with a glass marble inside. When the siphon is working you can hear the marble clicking (it's really spinning). I definitely would recommend this for anyone that has a lot of fluid to transfer. I have tested this using water, gasoline, motor oil (5W30/10W30), and ATF fluid and it works great!!
A couple of suggestions:
1. The hose is only six feet long which will not be long enough in some situations. You may want to have some extra hose and attachments so that you can make this hose longer.(see bottom note)
2. The plastic hose is not labeled as food grade. It smells a bit and I'd prefer a better grade plastic when I move drinking water.
3. Again I'd like them to just sell the copper part and let the consumer make their own hose to length.
Tip - the hose is curled up and doesn't want to uncurl easily - you may need an extra person to hold one end of the hose.
Note - I bought a hose repair kit for a 5/8 inch fitting and was able to add it to the end of this hose after sticking it in very hot water. Now I can add a hose to this product and have more options for moving liquids.
