I bought the Fumoto F106 for my truck. People at work were like "That's the dumbest thing you could do." "Its too easy for someone to just open it up and drain the oil out of your engine" or "You better watch it, those things tend to corrode".

I do have to admit, I kept the valve open when I installed it (I don't know why I did that), and then forgot to close it when I finished tightening it into the pan. I then proceeded to pour four quarts of oil into my 2006 5.4L 3 valve before remembering to check that I closed it. After I closed it, I poured the other 3 quarts and walked to O'Rielly's to get more oil (a 3.2 mile round trip).

I'm more worried about someone stealing my cat converter than tampering with the oil plug.

lol

I, in large part for this reason, keep a full 'extra' change worth of oil sitting around. I don't ever want to forget the drain plug and be left with an empty oil pan. *knock on wood* haven't done that so far.

I bet you do too now, eh?

I have the $80 Ronin plug that everybody says is too expensive.

I just used it for the first time over the weekend, and I'd gladly pay twice the price for the convenience and ease of use that it provides.

Didn't spill a single drop of oil.

I have about a quart and a half left in the 5 quart bottle I bought at O'Reillys, but I don't have a full 7 quarts. I'll just remember to close the valve next time. Plus, I have Amazon send me 6 quarts of oil every four months (and I get the 7th quart from Wal-Mart when I get groceries when it's time for an oil change)

Truth be told, I spent close to $100 on that oil change -- the 5 quart bottle from O'Riellys was $35, then $25 for the same oil from Amazon, plus the oil filter wrench and two more trying to figure out what size the old filter was (but I returned those two), and also the Fumoto drain valve.

I would not be at all surprised if the EZ-Drain guys and/or the Fumoto guys release a spigot version for composite pans very soon. Id hold off on dropping the $80 for a bit and see what comes down the pike!
