Does this mean I have to deal with drips from the pump, tube, and adaptor?
Yes it’s probably a bit more messy if you’re moving it between containers a lot. You can use any tubes you want with it if the ones supplied aren’t doing the trick. I haven’t found any instance where I needed a stiffer tube yet.Does this mean I have to deal with drips from the pump, tube, and adaptor?
The mityvac hoses are quite stiff - that floppy tube isnt going to work in many of my cases- into a mower through the fill plug - sure.
Down my Hondas/ nissan/ boats dipstick tube - not happening.
