It only took me five years of spilling diesel on the decks to finally fall in love with the Safety Siphon. For under $10 I got two of them from Amazon. One for water, and one for fuel. Spilling a few cups of fresh water on the deck isn't the end of the world, but a diesel spill can be a real pain in the neck. It stinks, it stains, and it's not like the stuff is free.

Pop the Safety Siphon in, jiggle it a few times, and the siphon starts. It's just that easy. You can sit there and watch it pour, rather than attempt to man handle the damn jerry jugs like a display of performance art.
