    Yep! would have, would it have been as reliable ? No, better product, i dout it, my home product will last for many years, many years ! while i do believe in supporting the vendors, some cannot/willnot provide a product than will last year after year!

    now are you a vendor ? if so state it !

    i simply provided a simple solution to the high cost of general maintenance, which in most case's drives the end user away from retail stores.

    btw what is the retail cost of a simple oil change ?

    Who would want to haul all that crap around to just do a $20 oil change.

    The oil sucker on this web sites store is cheaper and easier to use. That and its simple to drain and clean.

    Extension cords and electricity with noisy pump, screw all that, go green and hand pump it.

    am i a vendor... no


    have i had to do an oil change where there was no access to electrical outlets? yes....

    i also like to see what i am sucking out of my motor to see if there is water or gas in the oil do you have provisions for that or do you need to suck everything out of the motor and then pour it into another container?



    to each there own.....

    big difference between practicality and longevity of a product.

    as for the high cost of general maintenance.... it costs no more to do an oil change in a ski than it does in a car. you gotta play to pay

    oil is 8.29 a quart x 4 quarts
    filter is 9.50
    labor to do an oil change @ dealer 1/2 hour @85 an hour

    the fluid extractor pays for itself the first time you do an oil change.
