    As jy op die "filler" pyp 'n konneksie aanbring wat jy kan af "blank", dan kan jy die pomp daaraan konnekteer en laat loop terwyl jy ry.

    As tenk vol wys dan sit jy net die pump af.

    Now the question is:
    How do I get the diesel from the plastic tank into my vehicle's tank? As the outlet of the plastic tank will be lower than the filler on the vehicle. Can you pump it safely using an inline pump? And what pump do you use?
    Gravity filling a jerry can and then transferring to vehicle is not an option.
    Why donít you use air ? Surely you have a compressor . Connect it to the breathe and a regulator to not over pressure it .

    Fit a high preasure pump in the back, with a quick release connection typically found on boats so that you can take a hose to the filler cap....,works like a dream, no air locks etc etc, and you can fill other vehicles as well. I also fitted a switch inside a small round plastic container with a lead to the pump so i could turn the pump on and off while at the filler cap. Filled the plastic bottle with resin to make it intrinsic to a point.

    Dit sal beslis werk so en is n goeie plan dan kan jy net n klein ball valve in sit waar jy hom wil af blank.
    Ek wil net kyk waar kan ek die 60lt tank onder my F vas sit dan gaan ek dit ook so laat werk terwyl ek ry.

    Ek het 'n 100lt tenk agter op die bak. T piece in die filler se breather pyp, deur die loadbin, 10mm ball valve aan tenk. Wanneer die bakkie se tenk so by 1/4 kom, dan maak ek die ekstra tenk oop en die diesel gravity feed binne in die bakkie se tenk in. Teen daardie stadium sal die vlak binne in die ektra tenk laer wees as die bakkie se filler, en kan jy hom oop los. Die enigste probleem wat ek soms ondervind is, dat die bakkie se tenk druk op bou, en dan hou dit die ekstra tenk se vloei terug. Maklik. Maak net die bakkie se tenk oop en dan vloei hy weer.
    Wanneer jy die ekstra tenk wil uithaal sit jy net 'n stopper in die pyp.

    Nie n slegte plan nie, maar ek wil nie n gat in my bak maak vir die pyp nie. Dalk oor 5 jaar as ek nog die voertuig het. Kans is skraal, ek het nog nooit n voertuig langer as 4 jaar besit nie.

    Met 'n nice blanking grommet sal niemand dit regtig weet nie.

    Haal uit as jy ekstra tank gebruik en sit terug na die tyd.

    Dit klink beter, sal gaan kyk. Anders is dit mints en hosepipe. Dit gaan dalk een keer per jaar gebruik word. Ons het destyds n petrol pomp vir die 2.8i Defender gesoek. Goedkoopste een was by LP4A teen R4500. Het die pomp uitgehaal, na autozone gegaan en een gekry vir R350.

    Solank dit veilig is om te gebruik. Ek gaan net pomp as ek stil staan by die kamp, hoef nie te pomp terwyl ek ry nie.

    Hoe vinnig kan so pomp 60 liter pomp?
