Super Siphon Mar 11, 2010
By Randle T. Bain
I was looking for a siphon hose for fuel transfer. Sucking on a hose to transfer fuels with nasty ingredients is something I would like to avoid. The Super Siphon seemed like a good idea and the price seemed reasonable.
The units arrived in good order. It consists of a hose made of good quality materials and a check valve that allows one way fluid flow. I placed the hose in the tank and shook as per instructions. Sure enough the fuel began filling the hose. Way cool, this thing might actually work!
Once the hose filled to the point siphoning could begin I stopped shaking the valve. Siphoning continued for a very short time then stopped. Several attempts with both units yielded the same results.
I took the hose and put it in a clear container filled with water to see what was happening. This the check valve does a good job of filling the hose once siphoning occurs the valve has trouble staying open. When the valve restricts flow siphon action slows then ceases.
A good idea marred by poor quality valve.

Works great Nov 12, 2012
By Just a guy
When Sandy hit my area there were very long gas lines and it became nearly impossible to get gasoline. I ordered this from Amazon and it arrived 24 hours after I ordered it. Awesome. I can now pull the gasoline from my sports car and put it in my SUV so that we can get around the debris covered streets. It also makes it much easier to fill the car from those heavy 5 gallon jerry cans.

good flow rate Nov 02, 2008
By Frank Anders
The Super Siphon takes a bit of repetitive jiggling of the ball end to get the siphon action working, but once going, the flow rate is quite good. Also, storing the hose stretched out (to avoid the curl that it has from being shipped in a coil) makes it easier to insert into containers.

Beats the heck out of sucking gas up a hose! Oct 30, 2012
By A. Jaynes
This is a little tricky to use the first time. After that it's easy every time, no spills and no "sips" of gasoline to get the thing going. Perfect for a pontoon boat with a built in gas tank with a side mounted cap.

Excelent performance for such a simple design Sep 19, 2008
By Gustavo Domecq
The only reason this product doesn't have 5 stars, is the curve it has because it comes rolled in one box.
If the siphon is straight from the beggining, there would be no mess in doing the first siphoning; as the hose doesn't reach the bottom of the fuel recipients because of the curves.
