Default Anyone using No-Spill Oil Drain System

I have used Fumoto on several vehicles, but this system looks like it will drain faster and easier. Anyone have experience e with the product?

$40!? No thanks. I guess I'm old school, and have no problem taking out a drain plug.

No problem with a drain plug Ranger but threading into a plastic drain pan IS a problem.

That "technology" is decades old. I had one of these when they first came out IN THE 90S:
Amazon Amazon
It was agonizingly slow, and leaked. Now, I only use Fumoto.

You obviously have not changed oil on a Ford Edge 3.5 or Subaru Outback 3.6. The Fumoto on my truck prevents oil spraying on my driver wheel when the plug is first removed too.

Yeah - I've swapped in a Fumoto (or more recently an EZ-Drain) in my last five cars and like them ALOT.

However...

The 2019's apparently utilize a plastic plug - which is not offered by Fumoto or EZ-Drain - just the Ronin one for (deep breath) $80.

Further...

According to the Internet -- which we all know is infallibly accurate, right? -- the yellow plastic drain plug is a one-time use part!! I still think $80 is ridiculous for a replacement, but hmmm.

The plastic drain plug is not a one-time-use part. They say to change the o-ring every time but nobody does.

Ah - that makes more sense. Well...I'd buy another mechanical turn-tap-to-drain-and-has-a-hose-nipple design...but not for $80!! And the $40 piece is only for threaded (non-plastic) pans.

I just use the stock setup, and I'll hold the plug in there a bit so that the oil doesn't just rush out, until it's a more controlled flow.
