This is the eleventh puzzle you'll encounter in Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. To access this puzzle, you must zoom into the pit and interact with the red drums. In order to solve this puzzle, you must make one oil drum hold one litre of fuel.

[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The first thing you need to do is fill the 9-litre drum with fuel, then use the arrow buttons to move its contents into the 11-litre drum.

    Doing so should reveal the key to solving this puzzle. Have you spotted it yet?

Hint Two
    After performing the steps listed in Hint 1, you should have nine litres of fuel in the large drum. This means you only need two litres of fuel to fill it up.

    Use the difference in the sizes of the two drums to adjust the amount of fuel that's in the small drum.

Hint Three
    As suggested in Hint 2, the next step is to move things around so that you have seven litres in the small drum.

    If you have nine litres in the large drum, fill up the small drum, then move its contents across to top up the large. This will leave you with seven litres in the small drum.

Super Hint
    After following the steps listed in Hint 3, the next thing you need to do is empty the large drum into it. There should now be seven litres in the large drum.

    Fill the small drum once again, and use it to top up the large drum. This should leave you with five litres in the small tank. If you keep repeating this process, you'll end up with just one litre in the small tank soon enough.

Pump it up!

Even with a broken pump, you can fulfil the request using the difference in capacity between the two drums. Life would be much easier if the pump worked properly, though...
