 +You can use a turkey baster. Attach a piece of flexible hose, then an aluminum arrow shaft. ((wedge of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=1352420)) \\
 +With plugs in the center of the tube caps, you can pull the plugs and insert the aluminum arrow shaft down into the tube. \\
 +Then hold it against the front of the plug hole and let the tip touch the spring at the back of the tube. \\
 +Once you get it the way you like it, make a permanent mark on the tube and you are good to go from then on. \\
 +If you start with clean tubes and fill the recommended amount, you can find that level by listening for bubbles as you play with the bulb on the baster. \\
 +That gives you a starting point. \\
 +You can use any kind of syringe, vac pump, etc in place of the turkey baster. \\
