Oil Add Trick
 
All,

Been using this for a few years now. Just took pictures today. I have a couple super strong magnets on the AC plumbing on the deck lid of my '87. I use them to support a metal radiator funnel when I am adding oil. They won't hold a full bottle, but strong enough to keep the nearly empty bottle dripping.

Hope this helps someone else. And yes, the magnets have been in place for 2+ years now.

Great idea.
 
Thanks for sharing. Love that idea. Going to use it for sure. Cool funnel as well.

I use a radiator funnel. I can jam it between the filler neck and the lip of the engine room.

That's super cool! Thanks!

I just pour it straight in from the bottle. The size and angle of the opening makes it relatively easy without spillage. Now if I have to only put in a quarter of a bottle that could be a problem

I did something like that on my '84. Won't work on my new-to-me '72...

Tried that. I am not coordinated enough to do this reliably. :rolleyes:

Don't have that problem on my 72!!

Come on! What's an oil change if you don't get at least a quart on the floor?

I just let them handle it, what can go wrong?

That is a great idea and beats my bungie cord method for sure.

Size matters, pNutz - all you need is a bigger, errrrrr, funnel!!! :)

Easier still is to cut the bottom off a plastic drink bottle and use that as a new CLEAN funnel each time. The size of the neck is such that it jams in the filler hole and doesn't move around.

Had a PM about the funnel. Look for a "transmission funnel."

Ketchup bottle oil funnel
 
The magnet/funnel looks good...Something that has worked well for me for years has been a 1 litre plastic Heinz Ketchup bottle...I just cut the bottom off of it -The spout fits into the oil fill pipe, and even stands up by itself....'Easy Peasy' :)
