I put a hose directly on the gear oil bottle and then i sqeeze it in. When the bottle starts to get empty (1/2 or less) top up the bottle with more gear oil. Also try to keep the bottle higher than the fill hole, it way easier using gravity than trying to fight it.
aren't the pumps like 4 bucks ? anyways, I leave the bottle in the house or in direct sunlight for several hours, that really helps. my first 2 times i used gear oil were both winter time...... impossible to pump-
Otherwise I put a 3/8" hose on the end of the bottle's nipple and into the fill hole. Once the bottle is tilted up and securely balanced against the shock/housing/body, I stab the bottom of the bottle to let air get in.
It takes about 5 minutes to empty a bottle this way. Enough time to go to the bathroom or start on a refreshment.

Good tip Dennis....I'll just add make sure the oil is warm.I usually set my bottles of oil in a sink of hot water to make sure the oil is nice and thin so it will run out as fast as possible( not that 75W90 is ever really thin!)_________________

I use a transmission funnel with a 3/8 clear tube jamed over the end. Put the tube in the hole and run it over the rear tire and fill the rear from out side of the car. Put a pan under the rear to catch the overflow. If you don't want to stand and hold the funnel raise the deck lid and hang the funnel from the lifter or hindge with a coat hanger ( put a fender cover between the funnel and car ).

air compresser, one gal. plastic gas "can", rubber tube. Cut a small hole snug for an air blower (safest way) or install a ball valve you can hook an air line to. Put lube in can, place tube in can so it is near the bottom put tube in fill hole and pressurize the can EASY if you air tight connections in the can(the blower will blow out before the can blows). Lube should flow(in AZ lube is warm all the time).
I usually like to put on a brand new shirt, then try to squeeze it in directly from the bottle, which results in me spilling it all over the place and ruining my brand new shirt. Then I like to run over my hair wih the creeper a few times to mash the 90wt I spilled on the floor into my hair. After that I prefer to swear for a while while and pace aroung kind of aimlessly while I look for the pump that I should have found in the first place. Once I find the pump, I effortlessly fill the rear end and silently wish I hadn't been such a knucklehead in the first place.
Very simple. Very Easy
My wife and I have a nice joke about the hair and gear oil! Ha ha ha ha ha
I use a 3/8" hose , put it in the bottle, then get a rag and my air hose and my air gun and blow air into the top of the bottle forcing the gear oil into the rear. It only takes about 20 seconds for a full quart...
