- Product Review (submitted on December 20, 2011):
The first time I needed this, it was 30 degrees outside. It was so cold , I could not get the kinks out of the line. I was also trying to pump from a scooter tank that was in the bottom frame of the scooter less than a foot off the ground. Needless to say I was at the mercy of road service. The battery finally ran down from using the emergency flashers and trying to charge my cell phone.. When gas arrived, I couldn't start the bike and had to wait for a motorcycle tow truck. All in all it took 5 hours to get home from 16 miles away. The next day I tested the siphon in the kitchen sink and it worked perfectly.
Here's some advice, take the siphon out of the container when you receive it and get the kinks out of the line and then coil it for storage (no kinks). I've used a heat gun to try and soften the line and it is better and useable, but still not completely round.
