Tanami pumps are great. They are simple, safe, compact and reliable but they lack flexibility. You have to have one specifically designed for your fuel container and if you have a number of different styles of container you need one pump for each.Look up Tanami pumps, purpose-built for what you want.
I think the 200 litre drums they leave for you at well 23 on the CSR might have contributed to some people wanting a transfer pump but you are right that the old codgers have led the charge in take up of these pumps.The idea of the Tanami pumps - and transfer pumps in general - is to allow easy transfer of fuel without having to manhandle the jerry can. I guess this came about with the rise in numbers of Grey Nomads.
Leave the jerry in the rack, hook the pump up, done.

connect your compressor to the valve (next to the red tap), then off you go.How does this work?
What is the filter thing for?
Thanx mate, but I'm trying to understand how it works so I can build a one myself using the scraps in the garage.connect your compressor to the valve (next to the red tap), then off you go.
The filter will filter out some/any/most of the crap from the jerry.
The Tanami has a pressure relief valve too, which stops you from accidentally exploding your can!
