If you have never heard of a jiggle siphon before, that’s OK I hadn’t either before I ordered one. I was chatting with some people in the TSP Facebook Forum one day a couple of years ago and they asked me if I had ever tried a jiggle siphon, which I of course had not.
A jiggle siphon is the simplest non-powered way to transfer fuel that doesn’t require you to suck fuel through a bare hose until you nearly swallow it.
So how does this marvel of engineering work exactly. Well its just a clear rubber hose, with a copper end piece that has a glass ball inside of it. You put the copper end into the full container, and the bare end into the receptacle. You then shake the copper end up and down in a very simple but awkward looking motion a few times. That gets the fuel moving and then let gravity do the rest.
There are a ton of different Jiggle Siphons on Amazon, all priced about the same, they all do what they are supposed to, they tend to be tightly wound in packing so you may need to heat it up a bit to get the kink out of it, and it is rather rigid in the temps approaching -40, ask me how I know. But for about 15 bucks US its worth having a couple of these incredible little gadgets on hand just in case.
