This device extracts oil from the filler
opening using suction.

I saw one of these in a Griot's Garage
catalog. Anyone have one? The oil filter
still needs to be taken off and the only way
to get at it is to get underneath the car.
So why not just pull the drain plug while
down there?

Also do they remove as much oil as
conventional draining?

Was thinking of getting one but now not so
sure. Looking for Bullitthead opinions.

These particular units are handy for the marine industry where clearences are tight in the case of the bilge. Most can't get a container large enough under the sump to hold all the oil, so they use these to syphon the bulk of it out then finish off using a smaller container and pulling the plug. Stay away from them for your autos. I do not recommended them.

That might be a good gadget if you were 95 years old, and couldn't move or bend very well. :wink:
Drain your oil completely, getting ALL and ANY contaminants out. And replace your oil filter at every change.
