Does it fit the large bung on a 55 gal drum?

I have one of the Jaz 15gal jugs and 2 15gal drums. I use a two wheel dolly and ratchet strap to hold the drum/jug to it.

I've had this pump for a few years now. I'd never go back to hand pumping.

Not sure if I just got a bad one, but after about a year it started leaking at a couple pipe connections when pressurized. I took it apart once and tried RTV around some O-rings. Still leaks, but not enough that I worry about.

Not great for Methanol though. Unless you're running your air thru a dryer.

I personally feel like that is an overblown issue. I use that pump, and both of my cars are put away for the winter with whatever fuel was left from the final pass. No caps or anything special. They will come out in spring and run the same number they just ran.

My alcohol always tests good so I am not worried about it. But I do go through it fairly quickly and when I pump it out about 20 gallons at a time and put them in 5 gallon jugs.

Looks like the Flofast pump with a Jegs sticker..

159.00
Flofast

I was a dealer for them when they first came out, still have mine.
Only issue I have with it is after sitting for a week the vanes dry out and it refuses to prime. I always leave a little alky in the hose and drain it back into the pump, no issues after that. Also, I must have a small air leak in the tube as when the fuel level drops below a certain point it doesn't want to pick it up.

One thing I love about it is I don't have to pick up a fuel jug. lol

Thanks for the help guys. It looks like the Flo-Fast 51507 is the one I need.
