oil extractor

I am tired of using my messy brass pump to extract oil from my engine and am considering purchasing a manual oil changer (e.g., topsider, Moeller). Does anyone have any recommendations?

I've been using one that looks like garden sprayer for years and years, called Suck something or other. Works great, heavy duty, holds 2 1/2 gallons. I think Defender sells them, I'll try to find a link. I've changed a lot of oil with this thing and it still works like new and never spilled a drop with it.

Here's a link

I use a Qwik-drain. It is installed on the dran plug. You just push a button and it pumpes it out. Very happy with mine

That derelict boat was another dream for somebody else, don't let it be your nightmare and a waste of your life.

I'll side with T37Chef. I've used the one he recommends and another that looks like a gas can with a bicycle pump attached. The plastic version is simpler all around and does a good job.

I've also used it to 'vacume' out the botom of my fuel filter bowl during filter changes.

+1 for the Moeller. Couldn't be any easier. Do yourself a favor and warm up the engine a few minute so the oil flows more easily.

Me too. And you can use it to extract other fluids too. Like Lucas mentioned, run the engine several minutes to warm up the oil before pumping it out.
