The Mr. Gasket pump has worked at our auto shop for a couple of years. Not one toasted marshmallow to date. But, I'm not the kind of dipshit that would hook up the wires right next to the end of fuel line . . .

I use a transfer pump from Harbor Freight. Don't laugh, its inexpensive and does the job. I use it to empty the tank down to a minimal amount, then I'll remove the transfer hose, disconnect one end of the fuel line from the petcock, and drain the remainder of the tank that way (smaller diameter hose takes longer to drain). For fuel injected bikes, drain a bit further with the transfer pump, then start the engine and run the tank dry (I don't do this too often as I don't like the fuel pump running dry).

As far as the transfer pump, just put a light grease or some oil on the pump shaft. That will keep things lubed and operating properly.

I used that siphon pump from harbor freight to change the oil in 30 generators recently. Works well, didn't spill much. And they are like $5

You can also use a pump that goes onto a 55 gallon drum and chop the tube down to whatever size you need.

the fuel hose on my honda is 10mm and draining it through the petcock is NOT slow! as i found out when i recently took the tank off to change the air filter, shut the petcock, pulled the hose off and got a face and lap full of fuel. oh yeah, my bike has one both sides joined by a bridging tube, forgot that! and twenty litres of fuel gives it a lot of head too!!
