I blew into our breather hose for 65 km when our pump died so you can pressurize it and still get to destination to get fixed, no need to be left on the side of the road, at least yours crapped out in town, ours shat itself 3500 meters high nearing the end of a valley in the middle of nowhere and we still had to climb to 4200 meters before descending 20 km into a town
