OK, guys, can you be more specific about why you like that pump?

I have a West Marine version

West Marine: Manual Oil Change Pump Product Display

Which I do not like. It takes over 30 minutes to get the oil out, requires almost constant pumping to keep the oil moving, and has awkward ergonomics.

(Yes, I do have the oil warm, and the oil filler cap off)

Part of it went swimming last time I changed the oil, and I'm wondering if I just need to trash it and try again.

So... How long does it take you to get the oil out?

Do you have to keep pumping the whole time?

Sorry to be pesky, but I don't want to spend money on a whole new one, if it's only marginally better than my present model.

Thank you!
