I work as a mechanic, if you have ever changed oil many manufacturers they have the oil filter in either a hard to reach place or above the frame or in some other spot that gets oils all over the underside of the car. This eliminates that issue. Just bend, place, and let the oil drain to the oil caddy. It’s made my job 100 times easier not having to try to clean up everywhere or putting a plastic bag down.
I got this tool to do oil changes on my 2015 Suzuki GSX-S 750Z. The problem in my case is that the oil filter sits directly above the exhaust pipes so a typical oil change will leave a lot of oil burnoff for later. With the Form-A-Funnel I simply draped it over the exhaust pipes and let the oil pour down, over the funnel and pipes and into the oil bin. Problem solved! It's easy to shape and re-form and cleans easily.
I ordered this product to help my husband when he changes the oil in his motorcycle. He Ioves it & has commented on it several times. He said he would usually have a large puddle of oil to clean up due to the the drain placement on the bike.
I've only used it once, but it made changing the oil in my generator so much easier. The only way to drain the oil out of that thing makes oil go everywhere, unless you can hold a 300 lb generator in the air while you unscrew the drain plug. Simply formed this funnel under the drain plug and angled it toward the drain pan. My only complaint is that I didn't get a bigger size. This one is a tad small, but made really well.
Outstanding product!! Oil changes on my Kubota were quite messy until this simple, perfect, almost magical item arrived. No drips, no spills and very easy to clean afterwards. A quick wipe down and back in the package awaiting until next time. Genius!
They are great for those tight areas and odd angles when draining fluids from equipment. That being said I needed something smaller for small equipment and this fit the bill perfectly.
