Guys changing own oil

Going to do this myself from now on due to cheaper cost and better than that the self satisfaction of knowing it is done right. My question is what are you guys doing with the used oil that is drained from your machines?

Most auto part stores have a tank in the back you can pour it in for free and they recycle it.

I save mine for the chili cook-off contest at work. Gets a lot of people calling in sick, makes me look good to the boss when I'm the only one showing up for work.

Seriously though, if you're changing your own oil...get the Fumoto valve for your drain plug. Best investment ever for oil changers...no more stripping threads, leaking plugs, etc. And no mess or dirty hands!

I get the one with the hose nipple (N-Series)...then I attach clear hose (Home Depot sells it) on the nipple and put the other end in my oil drain pan...open the valve...go have a beer...come back 30 mins later and close the valve, remove the hose from the nipple, change my filter, and fill her up with fresh oil!

For 2012+ 6.7L I think the p/n is F106N.

Now that's a slick idea...both the chili cook off and the drain plug!

All my oil goes to my buddy's grandfather's shop. He has a waste oil heater.

Oh yeah, and what was said above...Autozone and pretty much all other car parts people have free recycling of your oil...most have a max of 5gals per customer per day.

I had one of these on my old GMC Duramax and it was awesome. Well spend money!

But will these work on our trucks? Why don't they make them for 2011s?
