    Question 12V Diesel Pumps. 44Gal Hand pump and 44Gal Drums.

    OK the question is

    I am looking for a Pump to pump Diesel and BioDiesel out of a 44Gal Drum.

    Now I could usally do it with 240v but can't always want to use it where there is Power.

    Hence the reason for looking into a Pump that will run on 12v.

    Now the second question is that I know where I can get 12v Diesel Pump and it is OK for what it does but does anyone know how it will go with Bio and what sort of life difference will there be with using Bio?

    Also I know there have been discussion on here in the past for the 44Gal Rotary hand pumps. Does any know of a local supply of these pumps that will stand up to Bio and dino?

    And then any know of a supply of 44Gal drums for Southern western Sydney? Campbeltown/Bankstown type area would be OK.

    It's time for me to get into making Bio as well as buying it for my Rodeo The bus will drink just about anything so being able to make bio for that will keep the cost's down in driving it around

    Thanks Guys.

    Hello David

    I've just been chasing up a rotary hand pump for pumping WVO. Don't know how it will go with bio but with diesel there is no problem. You can try ringing Blackwoods, an industrial tool supplier, even repco, or oil and fuel distributors.

    Reply on how they go with with bio if you find out. Also post results on the 12volt pump and cost with flow rate

    Cheers and good hunting

    Just remembered,

    I picked up drums from a local oil distributor. All he said to me was "how many". Look in the yellow pages.

    I bought a 12/24V diesel pump from eBay for use with biodiesel. I bought the flow meter also, but it diesn't work with biodiesel - too viscous?
    It draws ~20A at 24V, but I don't know if it would draw more, or less, from 12V.

    The delivery hose supplied has started weeping, so will need replacing soon.

    It seems to work well, and pumps pretty quickly.
    It is similar to this one in UK 12/24V Fuel pump

    As for drums, Whitey's sell their emtpy methanol ones (closed top) for $5 each. Last time I went there they had dozens.

    Dave,
    This is what I use. Outback Ingenuity Pty Ltd
    It's called a Canning pump, and unfortunately they are out of production. I got the last one I think. Brilliant though, it uses compressed air, regulates it down to 2psi, then injects into the drum to displace the liquid in there and pushes it out of the discharge hose. Some clear beverage hose from Blackwoods and I have a fuel bowser. I power it with my spare tyre (a source of compressed air that doesn't wake the neighbours). Pumping ~100 litres takes about 3-4 minutes and the spare tyre pressure goes down from 50 to 25 psi. I top it back up when convenient.

    The supplier said it couldn't compete with chinese imports so maybe look for one of those?

    Hi, This one looks simular to tony's ( probably not as good, but look ) from fergstoolshed on ebay
    eBay Australia: 12V/24V Diesel and Oil Pumps (item 320108480739, end time 01-May-07 19:40:07 AEST)

    I think it is a vane type not a gear rotor so not the best for high viscosity.

    Nature Fuels,
    It IS the same, even down to the colour and nozzle. Be warned, the delivery hose will weep biodiesel. Dunno about WVO though.
