^ha!^

and

I tooootally agree Jim... I have one of those long thin ones (smaller tho, so flow does kinda suck) but rarely use it for this exact reason.

I find myself avoiding funnels at all costs usually... preferring to MAYBE clean up a mess by missing than guaranteed cleaning the mess by using one.

I take it none of you macho funnel-less guys are using the gallon jugs of Rotella or Delo.

No funnel.
Noah, no gallon jugs either.
For what we pay for oil, I want to open as many containers as possible.
Kind of makes me feel I got my $ worth.

Makes sense, Paulito - probably not much use for a thin "one" with lousy flow (I wouldn't know anything about that, however)!!!

An empty plastic oil bottle cut in half makes a nice throw away funnel.
Cut a square section out of the side of one leaving the cap on and they work good for cleaning small parts in mineral spirits while laying on the side with cut out facing up.
If you have a parts washer that pumps the solvent around put it in on it's side and take the cap off and swish the small parts around in it and parts washer keeps flowing in rinsing and cleaning the parts and draining out where the cap is removed.
