    Has anyone tried putting a hose on the bottle fill off of a Magnum, in order to drain the tank into a 5 gallon bucket???

    Does it get enough pressure in it to push the liquid back up and over the lip of a bucket of that size??? Or is it just gravity feed??

    it would have plenty of pressure. just put the magnum in neutral and squeeze the gas lever, it should fill up 5 gallon in a couple minutes. I usually just pump it into a gallon jug and then dump it into a larger container.

    Yes you can put a hose on it to make draining easier. Kind of like those drainzit adapters for changing oil.
