Default Looking at 12v transfer pumps

I'm in a cold climate and instead of moving drums around I might start transferring oil. What do you senior strokers like for 12v transfer pumps

I like using compressed air to move from barrel to barrel. 2-3 psi will move oil pretty nicely but I have never tried when it was real cold.

The Whale Pump will move some really thick oil and only draws a MAX of 8amps (cig lighter OK) - but its pretty slow when the oil gets cold/thick.

Default leaks

I have the Gulper 320 also and it works pretty well, but I've only used it above 70F. Keep it in a tray when you are using it, though, the casing frequently leaks some oil. Maybe 1 cup every 20min. Is this normal?

Not for me. Where is it leaking from?

I've used mine well below freezing to pump PHO the consistency of thick pudding - very slow, but it was either that or try to shovel it into the truck's VO tank.

I have used the cheap Harbor Freight/Northern Clearwater Pump for years. I know that there a lot better ones out there but this one is cheap and it pumps fast.

I am thinking of upgrading to another type of pump. I have heard that the Chevy Oil Modified pump works well with cold/raw oil.

I did up a SBC pump m-55hv with 3/4 in fittings. Works with my 1/2 in cordless but I have not got a holder for it and haven't actually tested it on oil yet. now that its 17 deg I should give it a whirl and see how fast it will pump cold creamy.
