400v Electric Fuel Transfer Pumps FAQs

Can I use a 18v battery on a 12V pump?

It is not recommended to use an 18V battery on a 12V pump. This is because the voltage of the battery needs to match the voltage of the pump to ensure proper function and prevent damage to both the pump and the battery. When you use a battery with a higher voltage than the pump is designed for, the motor in the pump will spin faster than intended. This can cause excessive wear and tear on the motor, which can lead to overheating, damage to the pump's internal components, and even total failure of the pump. In some cases, a pump may have a voltage range that it can operate within, which could allow it to function with an 18V battery. However, it is always best to consult the manufacturer's instructions and specifications before using a battery with a different voltage than what is recommended.

How long can a 12V pump run on a battery?

This will depend on several factors, including the type and size of the battery, the pump's motor efficiency, and the amount of fuel being transferred. A fully charged 12V pump should run for several hours. However, if you are transferring a large amount of fuel or using the pump for an extended period, the battery may run out of power more quickly. It helps to choose a high-quality battery with a high amp-hour rating. Additionally, you can reduce the strain on the battery by using a pump with a more efficient motor, or by using the pump intermittently rather than continuously. It is also important to monitor the battery's charge level and recharge it as needed. Some 12V pumps come with built-in battery monitors or low-voltage shut-off features to help prevent damage to the battery.

What types of pumps are suitable for diesel?

A hand fuel transfer pump can be used to move fuel from one container to another. Useful in many different industries, including automotive, industrial, and agricultural, hand fuel transfer pumps are designed to be lightweight and portable, making them ideal for use in remote locations or in areas where power is not available. They can be used for refuelling vehicles, boats, and other equipment.

If you’re working remotely or travelling to areas where there isn’t mains power, 12v pumps are a good option. These types of pumps come with two crocodile clips that you attach onto a power source such as a car battery. Our 230v diesel pumps are more popular for use with static tanks on a working farm, for example, and tend to come with a 3-pin caravan plug or a 3-pin UK domestic plug. 

Our engine driven fuel transfer pumps are an efficient way to move fuel from one location to another. These pumps are powered by an electric motor and are generally used for transferring fuel from a storage tank to a vehicle or other equipment. Available in a range of sizes, they can be used for a variety of applications in agricultural, industrial, and commercial. Learn more about these products with our helpful guide to diesel pumps.

Can I use diesel transfer pumps for kerosene?

Unfortunatly no. Kerosene has a lower flash point that diesel.

Because of this lower flash point there will be a greater chance of a spark resulting in ignition during the pumping phase.

**Please note: All kerosene, just like petrol must be ATEX approved, meeting they are certified as being safe for use in potentially flammable environments**

Where are fuel dispensing pumps typically used?

Fuel dispensing pumps are mainly installed on static fuel storage tanks. They can be purchased as a complete unit with a tank, or they can be retrofitted to existing tanks.

Typically, fuel transfer pumps are used in non-resale refuelling environments as it is not weights and measures approved. (If a weight and measure pump is needed, we ask for you to contact us or send us an email on sales@fueltankshop.co.uk so we can discuss your requirements).

What is the difference between 12V and 230V?
