Fumoto Drain valve

http://www.dieselsite.com/index.asp?...PROD&ProdID=33

Anyone have one or use one? Sure sounds like it should be a sweet little mod. I am looking at the one with a hose barb on it.

I am a little scared about it opening up on its own even though they say it locks. Anyone have any feedback?

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

I know I have seen several people on here with em in their sigs. As long as u don't off road all the time I think they are supposed to be real good.

If its such a b1tch then why not just use the regular drain plug?

I had one - dad bought it for me as a gift and i hated it. It seemed cool untill i went to change the oil the first time and it took an hour and a half for the oil to drain from the pan. The opening on mine was LITTLE and oil - even hot oil - flowed through it painfully slow. I went through 3 oil changes and i tossed it in the garbage.
If you buy one, tie a dollar bill to it and chuck it in the garbage.

I still use mine. I'm a little with Clay on how slow it drains. I always drain it hot. Place a 5 gallon bucket under oil pan with funnel and draaainn...... THEN I change oil filter and piddle sum. It's OK with me I have SOME patience.
Don't worry about the latch!! It wont turn on it's own!!

I would never trust that thing and if you have trouble having a wrench handy then you shouldn't even be changing your own oil, who wants to wait around for an hour and a half just to drain oil!!??

its not an hour to drain, I will give it 15-20 cold, and about 7 hot. I presonally think the oil comes out of the drain plug too fast when its hot, and splashs alot. The Fumoto valve it comes out straight and smooth that you could fill jugs w/o a funnel, and yes slower.
