AbstractThis invention pertains to a system for pumping a fluid of a variable consistency into a fluid container. The system includes a vacuum power assist auger to withdraw fluid upwardly from a reservoir. A hose connecting an outlet end of the power assist auger to a fluid inlet at one end of a booster pump assembly is provided to supply fluid to the fluid inlet. A fluid outlet is provided at another end of the booster pump assembly. The fluid outlet is connected to a loading pipe so that the fluid is forced by the booster pump assembly through the fluid outlet and the loading pipe to the fluid container. A vacuum is created by the booster pump assembly in the hose so that fluid of a variable consistency may be withdrawn easily from the reservoir by the power assist auger and the booster pump assembly.
