Default Waste oil transfer pump?

For those that are heating with used oil, what are you using for a transfer pump? I had a hand pupm I used for summer, but that is impossible now. 12V or 110v, I can adapt for an easier solution. Needs to pull 5-6 feet height and sometimes my oil can be 50w, but I can mix it partially. Thanks in advance.

I'm wondering the same thing. HF has clear water pumps on sale for cheap and I was going to try one of those. I'm trying to reclaim waste engine oil and clarify it for fun... by running it through a toilet paper filter assembly.
