you could try something like an outboard motor line with a bulb built in.

naturally thats a marine part so its 'kin expensive, but the basic idea should work.
whether its worth spending money on it I dunno... mind you you could always 'encourage' the person who ran out of fuel to to the sucking, after it it was their fault....

Thank you Mr Scott for the lesson on how to siphon fuel using only a clear plastic pipe without getting a free drink of petrol. I have passed this link on to my other motorcycle friends.
