Glass Syringe for fuel refilling, this will be handy as petrol distorts the plastic plunger on a normal syringe in short order.

Interesting  I may have to look into this , the plastic ones have a way of collapsing when sucking steam water out of the discharge cup.

I've ordered some to try out as getting fuel in the H&M engines is a right royal PITA.

I’ve always wanted to try a glass syringe for the reason Bruce mentioned, but was always too cheap to pull the trigger on one  :D

I have an old one from a veterinarian's office. I think I could refuel a 747 with it....

I use screw top two ounce squeeze bottles with blunt needle tips for fuel, oil, and water for the m91. They work fine, but aren’t graduated for precision dosing.

Mine are made in Italy and shipped out of Illinois (2 states away). Cost a little more at $4 a piece, but I try not to buy much out of China

If they are good Nick, I'd like the link mate.

Will let you know right away Jim, just don’t want to talk them up too much if they’re no good... Guess I was wrong on the price of $5.49 (free shipping) but I had to buy 4 to get them that cheap... singles were $9.99

They used some pretty cool looking glass syringes on my wife when she had the last baby, I was going to dig them out of the garbage, but they wheeled it out too fast  :D
