I use the clear plastic tube from B&Q, you can see the fuel moving in it, and with a little heat it will fit over the fuel tap but into the fuel pipe.

Good bit of kit these, I have to older Carbtune II with are ace, and I can only think the Pro's must be slightly better someway, but can't think how.
