    Can be used on any engine with a dipstick tube.

    Pela oil extractors are considered the best to go for. Around the £30-50 mark for a 6 litre (DTI's capacity is 5.5 litres!)

    great!..

    tbh, iv got a 12v screw type pump that i used to use for veg oil so i think il use that. only problem is finding the right diameter tube because from what iv seen, it looks like the dipstick tube actually narrows at the bottom inside the engine?....

    No idea on that unfortunately, but i'd say washerjet tubing should do the job, but due to the diameter of it, it may take a while to empty it

    Personally I prefer the normal drain method, as it get more crud out of the bottom of the sump.

    Definitely get a powered one. I got a hand pump and it takes about a billion pumps to get all the oil out. You'll end up with one skinny arm and one like Arnie. Lol

    I knew there would be an excuse to "Pulling" the oil out rather than "dropping" it
