I recently bought one like that and I wasn't impressed - in fact I couldn't get it to suck fuel out of a tank - have you had a better experience?

Edit - I'm talking about the first link posted

That looks like the thing we used to use with outboard motor boats' fuel tanks.

I use the #93290.

It is IMO OK for small volumes = 5 gallons or less.
