Has anyone heard of a kit that you can pump gas from your car into gas

and off three hours at a time. If I could the 10 gallons out of our
Focus, it would sure hel[p. You can't syphon gas out of the tank.

that fits on the end and the other into a container. start engine and
leave it runing, watch how the container fills up by itself!

fresh for a year or more. Every couple of months I rotate one of gas
cans by pouring the oldest gas into the car and then refilling the
can. That way I don't have any gas older than a 12 or 18 months.
When on generator, I burn about 4 gallons/day.
Even with cans sealed tightly, you should store them in a well
