Draining the oil bottles

PostAuthor: Jake » Sun Dec 31, 2017 12:36 pm

I wish I had known of this many years ago when I did all of my own oil changes, these days the only ones I do myself are my truck ( easy to get under ) and my bike.

What I used to do was empty the oil bottle by propping it up over top of another and draining the remaining oil over a several hours. I then used the oil I collected for various purposes.

This is a much better way.
