    This is one for the guys with electrical know how.

    Is there any way you can run an air and flow pump by plugging it into the car's cigarette lighter socket thing???

    Go to your nearest fishing tackle shop. They should sell airpumps (the ones pushing air through an airstone) running of batteries as well as 12v (cigarette socket)- I have quite a few of them for livebait- and they also sell bilge pumps also running from 12 v- again, I have a few of them for my live wells- and some is already more than 2 years old and still working fine ;)
