YUP!
This is EXACTLY the simple/cheap way to transfer diesel.
You can buy these little 12V pumps on E-Bay, or elsewhere online for under $20.
I am old, and holding a 5gal. can up high, while it drains, no longer works for me.
These pumps are just under 1-1/2" in diameter.
Current E-Bay listings: 193777625607, or stainless 193788206536..... $17.52 each
My cans are all 33mm at the throat (Canada). These pumps are 38mm- too large to go in the can.

Just use an el cheapo HF battery powered pump in the 5 gallon jugs. Sure, it's slow but I am in no hurry.
Same here. I've used one for 5 years and it works perfectly. Start the pump and walk away for about 6-7 minutes. It's pumped about 25 cans (5 gallon- 23 L) and the battery still works.

I use a 55 gallon drum on a custom pallet. I load and unload on the trailer with the front end loader to fill it at the gas station.

I use this pump: 12 GPM Air Operated Barrel Pump ($70)

I just pop it on the air compressor and it works. I really didn't want another electric motor. I did replace the cheapo clear hose with a proper nozzle ($24)

I have a PITA Kubota L48 to fill up. I fill up my cans 4 gals at a time. When that gets too much I'll fill 3gals at a time.

I use a Terapump TFRA01 battery powered transfer pump to fill my CUT with diesel. I have a second one to fill the tank on our pontoon boat that never seems to be on the side closest to the dock! Very handy pumps for the last 3 years.

Good luck.

I use the same as fruitcakesa. Works good enough for me!

I’m only 3 miles to the gas station with off-road diesel so I take a little road trip every few weeks. Its the only time I get to exercise high range. A few farmers use the same station at times if they are far from home so plenty of turnover.

This has worked for me.
Plus they have really good chicken strips and Mt.Dew.

What you guys find to be the better way of fuel transfer to get away from lifting 5 gal jugs to fill tractor
Don’t use enough for 50 gal drum with pump
I use 5gallon cans but only put in about 3gallons each. I can handle a couple of partial cans easier than balancing a full 5 gallon can with my arthritic elbows
