I use a "jiggle siphon hose" to download the fuel from my 5 gallon containers into my RV-12 -- it works great and takes just over a minute. The container sits on a small temporary aluminum platform on top of the fuselage and the whole shebang is bonded to the airframe (and I also ground the airframe for added safety). Some hoses purport to have anti-static linings (e.g., Harbor Freight's version) but I'm not totally convinced of their effectiveness.

If it’s inappropriate for discussion, please PM me, I’m genuinely curious.

For crying out loud, Eddy . . . don't poke the bear.
