    I went to the "US Solar Pumps" website ( www.ussolarpumps.com ) and found that it is suitable for food service applications, chemical spray, wine dispensers, ice machines, and coffee dispensers. So I figured why not gasoline?:rolleyes: lol. The pump comes with a rubber boot that is fitted over the DC motor making it protected from possible explosive vapor and the seals are rated for corrosive use (probably Viton but this is a guess). The gears are nylon and the pump housing is a formulated nylon plastic.

    Has been very hot humid and rainy so not much flying yet for 2017. Lots of shop time though:). Just finished upgrading a dual Miracle switch with 6amp toggles (vice stock 3 amp) and 18awg wire for my Extra. The BLS H50B on the rudder and spectrum 8010 receiver will thank me. Waiting for the Tech-Aero Ultimate IBEC to show up and getting it in the plane.

    Thanks for the info that looks like a good pump for the price. I will order one and give it a go. Thanks.
    Sorry one more question can you fill and empty the tank by just reversing the power leads.

    Decided I was tired of having to run an extension cord to my van just to charge 2 receiver packs in an airplane, so I installed a DC port. What's nice is these Chevy cargo vans come setup with 2 accessory ports on the fuse block which allows you to do this kind of stuff without having to have wiring running everywhere. I can't say my install looks factory mint but at least the wiring is tucked away nicely where you can't see it.

    The port should handle all of my charging needs for receiver packs and small foamy packs :)

    They are bright aren't they! I'm using one in my new H9 Extra and I about went blind when I first powered it up. I'm used to my Powerbox Spark Switches with there red LED's that aren't that powerful.
