Finally! Easy V8 oil change

I haven't changed the oil since I installed the RCI skids and got a helpful tool...a Form-a-Funnel. I already have a Fumoto valve so between all three of these items, the oil change was the easiest I've ever done! And not a single drop of oil on the pavement! I did have to loosen the filter a bit without the funnel in place as there was no room to turn the filter wrench. Just enough so it was still sealed, but could be undone by hand after placing the funnel.
The F-a-F is the Truck/Tractor size, btw, and I just wiped it clean.

Ha, I just did mine today too! Always a little tight reaching in to pull the retainer clip off of the fumoto. Not bothering with a ratchet is nice though. I used the lid from a plastic pastry container for my funnel
