Can Nitro fuel pump be used in my gas setups?
I'm converting to Gas. I have a manual fuel pump to pump from the nitro to the tank. I was wondering if I can also use this to pump my gas to my gas tanks.
Is there a specific cleaning method I should use, and or should I just purchase a new one?
How safe are electric pumps with gas setups?

Some pumps willl work fine with gasoline but some won't. The cheap Chinese pumps may not use rubber products that will stand up to petroleum products. Robart had a pump out called the "six shooter" that would work. The rubber tube was more plastic than rubber and since it's mechanical no worries with a spark.
If you want an electric pump, you can find 12 v fuel pumps for cars at Summit Performance Parts. You will need one that has a outlet presure of 12 lbs or less.

I have twp pumps that transfer gas...The black one from Tower Hobbies is a pair of gears,that will pump most any fluid.I use it for gasoline,and smoke oil.
The Dave Brown Six-Shooter is a very versatile pump..The tubing allows many different fluids also,and it moves a lot of it !
