Periodically to run power equipment, generators, etc. I need to steal gas from one of my cars.
I went to Home Depot hoping to find a siphon but no luck.
Any idea who might have one?
Home Depot, Lowes, Wal-Mart...
Here's a kit...you can make a bunch of them out if it...
Seriously, are you referring to those squeezy-bulb hand pump things , or something else ? I got a squeezy one at Lowes for like $8. I use it to fill my Kero-Sun.

Not to ruin the fun and all, but you don't need to physically suck on the hose with your mouth to start a siphon.
Run the tube almost all the way into the tank. Cover the end with your thumb. Now take the mouth of the tube and move it lower than the level of the gas in your tank. Remove your thumb. Siphon will start.
And no mints needed!
A friend was at UConn Law School years ago. He lived on Asylum Avenue (yes, that's the name) in Hartford. Every now and then, he would get terrible mileage on a tank of gas. He started tracking his mileage. The terrible mileage correlated with 5 gallons "missing" from that tank of gas.
