Are these any good? I know the fill-rites come highly recomended but I see some fueln pumps on special and they look nearly the same... http://www.prohoists.com/shopping.idc?P ... ategory=15

I don't think from looks you can tell if its a cam style like the Fill-rite. You would need to open it up. If its a vane style or impeller pump it won't be as good. I wouldn't buy one just to find out.

The only review I could find said this so guess I'll avoid unless anyone else has some good experiences....

"I purchased a diesel fuel transfer pump brand name FUELN. The pump doesn't work. We thought we would have to go home empty handed. The owner told us we were not leaving empty handed and we didn't. The owner and employees of the 5th quarter were wonderful. They brought out some empty pitchers and funnels and even helped us fill our containers. We gathered 25 gallons of beautiful liquid gold WVO."

Fueln Pump

The website says it is a vane pump. I don't think I would recommend that type for cold weather use or if lack of priming might be an issue.
