I was just informed that a lot of people on here weren't aware of this valve. The fumotovalve is permanently placed on the oil pan where the drain bolt once was. There is no replacing crush washers with every oil change. And if you buy the valve with the nipple on the end, you can put a piece of 3/8" tubing on the end of it and you will be able to drain your oil into any container you wish. I have had mine on my car for 35k miles, and this is one mod I will never take off of my car.
