Default Fueling your Firehammer

Do any of you guys have a trick set-up for fueling your gassers? Besides a gas can and a funnel.

or these little hand pumps are good aswell being it can remove any fuel in your tank ,i have seen these ones at the lake but make sure they are petrol safe ..

common mistakes like overfilling the tank and spilling gas. i do it all the time with my lawnmower because you can't see the fuel level lol. i'll think it's almost empty and once i tip the gas can, i prove myself wrong.[:@]

Sometimes I do the gas can and funnel method, and it's fine.

I normally use a tank that has a hand pump, I got it from InnovativeHobby (largescaleRC). Has a small tube you insert into the gas tank and then you crank it.
