Will try out F30's suggestion next of using a pneumatic transfer pump ... could you share a link to a good one that's known to work?
Griots Garage used to sell a nice transfer pump, but I think it was just a re-branded Motive product. I used mine for a long time and it worked well, but I now have shop air and a real pneumatic oil extractor, which works fantastic.
