Saw this on the 2.8 LWN Duramax owners facebook page and thought it sounded like a great idea. I've never seen one. Especially since there is a cross member right below the drain plug on our truck that causes a heck of a mess when the oil hits it? Guess you change the oil once, then insert this in place of the drain plug. It has a little lock thing to hold the lever in place from accidentally getting opened somehow (wouldn't that be awesome, accidentally lose all your oil when a twig hits that lever o_O ). Also can get a cap to cover up the spout to keep it clear of debris. Just get you some 3/8 hose and then it all goes down the hose and into your train pan or whatever you put oil in. Think I'm going to have to get one.

The Fumoto valves are great I've used them on a couple of vehicles before. The ones with the nipple you can slip a hose on it to put oil right in a bottle or whatever.

Great find. This will work out great for my motor home. I'll post some pics once i get it.

I just ordered the Fumoto F107N valve. I may end up having to return it and go with another one of theirs if I think it's going to hang too low. We'll see though.

Have installed fumotos on every one of my vehicles since about '05. Love it! The only one I haven't bothered with is my Cruze TD. Too much of a hassle to do the work myself. I just have the shop do it.
