    Default oil transfer pump ?

    with our new building addition, we had to move the oil tank, its now about 40 feet from driveway, slight uphill. The local oil delivery guys charge an extra 50 cents a gallon to deliver. that adds up fast with a 300 gallon tank. So we bought a few 55 gallon drums and a transfer pump from the oil company and will fill those in town and transfer to big tank. Well the pump is at its limit for pushing that far and is very slow. Its what they sold, forget name, but it is about 1 foot long, can wrap my hand around it, and you drop it into drum and hook to 12 volt battery.

    Don't want to spend a fortune or sit and hand pump for a hour,

    any ideas ?

    I’ve been using this one from Harbor Freight tools for the last 7 years, it’s 10GPM and is working good.https://www.harborfreight.com/12-vol...CABEgI-XfD_BwE

    I'm glad this topic came up. I need to pump 30-40 gal. of heating oil from a 50 gal. barrel. It's old and I just want to dispose of it, can anyone tell me the best way to properly do so.

    If you were in Fairbanks you could take it to the FNSB landfill and they would dispose of it for you for free. If it were me I'd look for same option in your area.
