This product works well. I do agree with many of the criticisms of the other buyers but the shortcomings they describe are easily overcome. The intake fitting on the pump does leak - this can be eliminated by installing a second "garden hose" type washer into the threaded coupling on the pump - this costs maybe $.10 at a hardwware store. In other words, use two garden hose washers rather than one. The output of the pump is also difficult to manage and can be messy because the output tube is short, stiff, and unwieldy. I remedied this problem by removing the output hose and attaching a 4' long piece of clear vinyl tubing of the proper diameter to the output fitting and securing it with a hose clamp - this lets me route the dirty oil into a remote container. I bought the tubing at [@]- it was probabaly $3 or $4. With the previous modifications the "messy" problem goes away. The pump is not fast, each stroke pumps maybe a cup of oil, but the pump works well, I can remove 6 quarts of oil in 5 minutes or less. I bought my pump nearly 20 years ago and it continues to function properly with no problems, it just needs the above modifications to eliminate the issues mentioned by the other buyers.

              I agree with all most of the reviews. I think I will die of old age before I can pump out the oil.

                      Review on : Little Pal Pump Kit by Jabsco
                      I've never written a reivew on a product before, but spending over $45 on this pump, I could have saved myself an hours and just flushed my money down the toilet.

                      Any of these hand pumps will tend to get messy, but my problem is it would only pick up a minisule amount of oil with each pump even with the oil running hot. I don't have experience with other hand pumps, but this is definitely not the way to go about it, especially if you value your time.

                      Do not buy this product.

                          Why does West Marine carry this thing? It's a total failure when it comes to simply pumping oil. It took over three hours to pump a mere 1.5 quarts out of 2 quarts total from an engine that is easy to work on.

                          I purchased this pump because I was looking for something easy to use and that would work effectively to pump the oil out of my mercruiser. This device is of terrible design, doesn't work properly, and would take a whole day to pump 5.5qts of oil. Bought it this morning and through it in the garbage this evening. [$] wasted, so save your money and go with the pump that has it's own reservoir for $80
