Fumoto drain plug

Does anyone use this and if so, how do they like it? Been looking at getting one for my truck.

I use one, works great. I would let the oil get around 120* or so before you drain it, it will take a good bit longer than normal if you don't.

Hi,
I have been using one for several years now, not on our pickup tho, on our boat, I was tired of draining the oil in the bottom and letting it run out the back, now I just hook a hose up to it, run it out the drain and into a pan, works great, saves a lot of time and mess. Ours has never leaked and have had no problems with it.
Good luck
Randy

Thanks guys. I suppose I should have bought one sooner, as I just changed my oil, but I'll have one for next time. Does it have a gasket on it for in between the plug and pan?
