    I try to refrain. Since it's premium and I'm cheap, I'll make the trip to the station and fill up one of my ten or so fuel cans for the lawn mower, string trimmer, bike etc..

    Not to mention this is the state of year round boating.

    I have to admit I've been surprised by my daughter a time or two. Who knew she could even siphon. All that premium in her 96 Chevy Cavalier. What a waste.

    jetboatperformance, lol guilty, when i was a kid i would go around my block siphoning cars fuel and sell it to my friends brother.. That was back when fuel was around 1.50 a gallon though. I'd be pist to find sombody doing that to me now... shit we do when we're kids....

    Squirtcha, Ya does suck knowing i'm sucking out 91 but honestly i would rather suck it out during the winter so that i dont have bad fuel when summer rolls around. I suppose i could add a additive to keep the fuel from going bad... Maybe thats just my excuse?

    Widetrack, Electric pumps!!!!! pshhh.... you have to do it the ghetto way and siphone it out... Nothing like that first siphone of the winter when you think the hose is longer than it is and you get a mouth full of gas!!!
