    Anyone using this 12v marine pump (9576-2VGA) from Harbor Freight as a transfer pump? - Patrick

    I have tried a similar type unit and it did not end well for the pump. I am currently testing another 12vdc diaphragm pump that is a lot heavier duty than the Whale pumps, and consequently more expensive. So far it has pumped 55 degree oil at almost 8 gallons a minute. Still playing with hose sizes and lengths for the really thick stuff. And of course the downside is that it can not pump as large of sediment as the whale pumps.

    What's so hard about making a pump that can move solid lard at 20gpm?
