Suction is wonderful, but a hand job is safer. I've had success with a simple manual sqeeze bulb (like those used on outboards) between the tank and the filter. After changing a filter, a few pumps sends fuel to the high pressure pump. If I haven't run it to empty that's usually sufficient. Theyre' made for gas, not diesel, so I keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't disentrgrate, but at a few $ each, theyre easily repalced. Beats the hell out of that silly lever on the low pressure fuel pump.
