Just use the bike tire pump and save yourself a lot of money and work. It does not get any easier than that.


Thanks

ORIGINAL: desertpig

1 > 1 or 2 Gal ventless gas can (home depot / ace, etc..) $4
2 > Sig "Gass Passer" sealed gear type fuel pump $30
3> Radio shack sealed 5A DPDT switch $5
4> Batteries Plus 5AH 12V sealed battery $25
5> Dubro Tank adaptor - $7
6> Tygon / Aerotrend fuel line $3
7> Sullivan "crap trap" filter $6
8> home built tote box - $0

Total investment - $77


BTW - all modern fuel injection systems, aircraft fuel delivery systems and racing fuel cells have sealed motors that are immersion type (i.e. are running inside the tank or cell immersed in fuel). You don't have to worry about sparks from the motor or switch setting off any fumes.

Actually, my investment was a little higher than that (these are approximate):

1) Anderson Pump: $37.99
2) Radio Shack sealed 5A DPDT switch: $5.49
3) Radio Shack Momentary Switch: $2.69
4) 4' x 8' 3/8" Plywood sheet: $12.99
5) Electric Brad Nailer: $59.00
6) Electric Random Orbit Sander: $69.00
7) Deck screws that I didn't use: $5.00
Total: $194.16

I already had:

1) Dubro fuel tank and hand pump: $24.99
2) Tygon fuel tubing: $5.00
3) 12v Gell-cell Battery(pulled it from a broken Sears rechargeable car air pump) : $17.99

This is still cheaper than buying one of those commercial hobby fuelers and I get to reuse the sander, nailer, screws, and most of the plywood.

Jim - that's pretty funny! I have a house full of tools I bought too from all the projects that "costed less" than having someone else do it!

BARCC,

I use the 1 gallon setup from Jersey Modeler with the yellow plastic cap and it has worked just fine for me. It was worth the $44 to me to get a reliable setup.

To All,

Be careful what sealed means. Is it intrinsically safe from vapors, or sealed from dirt. From what I have seen, most electric gas setups are not right for gasoline, but they get by.

Manual works very well for me.

I'm thinking of going with the Sig "Gas Passer" sealed gear type fuel pump and Radio shack sealed 5A DPDT switch. How are you guys wiring it up so that you can fill and drain the gas?

I bought the 25 elec. I couldn't be happier. I use a 2s 2100mah lipo and went all last summer on one charge. When I recharged it there were only 1500mah's gone....from may-oct! Like I said....couldn't be happier. It also takes the fuel out of your plane in seconds as well.

P.S. Hangar 9 makes a hand pump for 15 bucks that works good too.

I had that six shooter- it is AWFUL!! The glow version works great, but I think the stiffer gas proof tubing makes the gas version hard to crank.
I hear ya pal! I am just getting into gassers and picked up a Six Shooter since I had used the glow version and really liked it. Before I had a half an ounce in the tank it came apart! It was extremely hard to crank and then the tube came loose from the fitting and leaked all over. I was so mad I tossed it in the trash and went out and picked up a geared type (Hobbico I think) pump which has been working good.

I thought of an electric pump but every glow electric pump I've ever had leaked at some point and the fuel ends up in the motor. Not going to take a chance with that happening with gas! [X(]

I'm not lazy either, but my planes have 40oz fuel tanks. It gets cranking the pump. My electric pump will also be filling my lawn mower, trimmer, snowblower, leafblower, and dirtbike. I plan on getting a good return on my investment. I wouldn't buy anything from Jersey. Too overpriced.

I made my own set-up.
Two one gallon cans, one for gas, the other for smoke.
Using two sullivan 12v pumps made for smoke fluid.
Haven't had any issue with the pump running the gas
12V sealed battery inside toolbox.

The trick is to find a gas container that actually has a cap on it! So far all I can find is ones with built in spouts that don't really seal the can, they are OK for filling the lawn mower, but not very suitable for adding the hardware to use it for fueling.

Sometimes you can score a real honest to god old fashioned metal can with a normal screw on cap by buying a gallon can of paint thinner or Coleman Camp Fuel at the hardware store. Also, Hobby King sells a gasoline rated electric fuel pump for under 10 bucks. I have one but haven't tried it yet. I heard from another member here that they work fine.
