Fewer and fewer people change the engine oil in their car. I used to, now I don’t. One of the main reason was the hassle. Lifting the car, crawling under, unscrewing the plug, it was a bit of a headache.
Then a friend of mine showed me an invention that makes the whole process a lot easier. The “Fumoto Engine oil drain valve”, it turns your oil plug into a simple valve that you can open and close with the flick of your thumb. It should cut your oil changing time in half and drastically reduce the potential for messy spillage.
The reviews are strong, this item is built with quality and durability in mind. It cost $26.75, you can buy it for yourself or give it to the Gearhead on your list.
