A-Funnel, and you can watch a short video at <a href="http://www.formafunnel.com" target="_blank">http://www.formafunnel.com</a>
that will explain its many uses.

This might be the most clever tool in any toolbox. Check it out!

$40.00 for a formable piece of plastic? That's overpriced by $35.00
at least.

Anyone can cobble together a decent one-use funnel, otherwise all you
need is one cheapo from the local Target store.

You mean you pour the oil from the bottle like the little illustraion
on the side of the bottle shows? Or like the hand grip on the current
Mobil 1 bottles try to encourage you to hold the bottle? I think if
you would actually look at the bottles, you wouldn't need an 80- year
old guy to tell you how to hold the bottles to pour the oil properly.

OOOOHHHH, that hurt, Ed:) You're exactly correct, though. Could I
manage to save a bit face if I claim (truthfully) that this revelation
ocurred a number of years ago--prolly soon after plastic bottles had hit the
market--and after having developed good dexterity using the quart cans over
decades of oil-changing, growing up in a service/station-garage. What? a
car-guy reading instructions?...and on something so simple as pouring in a
quart of oil? Does help my feelings a tad, tho', when I see so many people
still doing it in reverse! s

Plastic bottles of food stuffs ought to have screw on caps on both ends,
that would things so much better.

Many years ago, an old ''trick'' at some old gas stations was to prop an
empty can of motor oil on/near the top of another empty can of motor oil
(sort of like some people will sit a bottle of ketchup on top of another
bottle of ketchup and let the top bottle of ketchup do it's thing) and
eventually, they would get a free can of motor oil to sell to the
customers.

Heck, back when oil came in round cans, old stations had an outside
rack designed for this purpose. From the side profile they had an &quot;A&quot;
shape. The round cans of motor oil were displayed along the front
sloped side. There was a lockable roll top desk type cover you pulled
down when you closed up. To open a new can of oil you used the type of
spout that pierced the can. After you emptied the can, there was a
drawer in the side that you pulled out to store the spout and &quot;empty&quot;
can. Any residue in the can would drip out of the can/spout into the
storage compartment. And as you say, eventually you would get an
&quot;free&quot; quart of oil of some type.

Some of those gas stations would buy motor oil and the motor oil would
be displayed in glass bottles with the metal spout(s) on the glass
bottles.I own a lot of old junk (but it's not all junk) I wish I own one
of those old glass oil bottles with the screw on metal spout.

Some of those old gas station/service station thingys are very
collectible.

A little off topic, but I know of one larger transmission repair company
that would
drain the trannies when they started to tear them down, all fluid going into
a common
vat. The mixture of fluids was then pumped through a series of filters,
after which
it was deemed to be &quot;clean&quot;. It was used to fill the trannies after they
were rebuilt
and installed.

Nice huh?

That shop is now gone, since the owner and operator died.
