I recentliy bought one of these to drain my tank. It works great. It's very compact, the tube is thin and flexible, it will pump even if it's sucking up some air, and the out-flow tube has a metal end that keeps it from jumping out of whatever container it's in.
Until now, I've carried one of those inexpensive bulb pumps (the black bulb with the two clear tubes coming out of each end) and it has been a lifesaver. But it is now officially retired. The Cranky Pump is more compact, less messy, easier to use and, if necessary, can reach the nether regions of an odd-shaped tank...so it's good for draining a tank almost completely dry.

This pump is great. I have used it for years. It is awesome being the hero when some stranger is out of gas on his bike. You pull this puppy out and before he can say I owe you a cold beer, You've transfered enough fuel to get to the station.
Also not having to carry an extra fuel bottle for your stove is priceless. (Posted on 1/24/11)
