I spotted this in a tatty copy of SkyMall on my last fight, and I’m thinking about purchasing one, if for no other reason than to cut down on the oil stains on my driveway. Products like the $500 transfer tanker interested me, but $500 buys a lot of oil changes. This one sells for just $65.
A few pumps create a vacuum to extract the oil from the pan via the dipstick. As readers commented on the tanker, Mercedes dealers use a similar (but more expensive, of course) system to service their cars. The extractor holds a maximum of 6.5 liters (7 quarts) — large enough for most cars and some trucks.
It’s also available for the same price from AutoSport directly as well as a variety of other vendors.
