Fumoto oil drain valve

Getting ready to do my first oil change on the new rig and was thinking it would be a good time to add the Fumoto oil drain valve. Looking for opinions - should I get the one with the nipple (for the hose) or without the nipple. The only downside I can see with the nipple is you give up a little ground clearance.

I have the nipple on mine, but I don't know that its needed. I just bought a big 16 quart pan and don't even use a hose.

I had one...Ford dealer will remove it when draining the oil and they stripped mine out and then sold me a plug...which i already had one in my parts bin.
I didn't really like the fast that it took so long for the oil to drain so i'll stick to the factory plug.

That was my other concern that I forgot to mention - looked like it may be slow esp. when using the hose.

The drain valve is a lot cleaner especially if you do it yourself, but like CHenry says its a whole lot longer drain with the valve.

If you can't drain the oil faster with the Fumoto then why switch to it. Sounds like an impractical mod to me.

The ONLY plus i can see to using this is if your in the driveway and its windy, the hose will keep the wind from making a mess with the oil as it runs out.
I do it in my garage and i literally have had to wait over half an hour a few times (oil was cold) for it to finish draining.

A 1/2 hour to drain the oil sounds like a step backward.

Yeah its personal preference as there usually is a tradeoff with most things. I like to just slide under the truck turn the valve end let it drain without the chance of loosing the plug in the oil pan or oil running down your arm as your loosening the plug. No tools required. But yeah it does take more time to drain.
