Scepter Used Oil Container 6.6L $3, 11.4L $5 @ Repco

200

Was chasing a basic container for an oil change this weekend, as I don't have any spare, and the oils in a 10l container so won't be emptied in a single go…

In steps Repco with a very cheap used oil container to make my oil change easier.

At only $3,it's cheaper than a 3l milk container ;)

Also a larger 11L one for only $5

    Looks good, wondering if you can drain directly into this or just store ?

    •  

      I have an oil pan already but looks suitable for both those applications (assuming your draining oil aim isn't terrible )

      •  

        Yea aim is very important, couldn't stop laughing, I might have done around 10 oil changes so far, there is always a little bit miss. Recently I have started holding the pan closer to plug with one hand while undoing final threads with other hand, worked fine.
        Regardless the price is very tempting and I have ordered one, can't thank you enough. Bought something which wasn't on my Christmas wishlist, true OZB style

          I bought the 6.6L, before finding the link to the 11L one…
          So bought both ;)

          Fumoto valve all the way man. Installed one on my first oil change and never ever have to mess with drain plugs ever again. Just push the valve switch from lock position up and turn to open, even has a "nipple" you can connect a hose to drain directly into any container you want. No fuss no mess no need to replace drain plug or washer. And if you ever fill too much engine oil or just want a sample of the oil just turn it open and close like a tap for small amount. Oil changes done in 10 mins.

      Save the empty oil containers for storing used oil. Using it as a drain pan is the whole point of this thing.

  •  

    if the outlet fits inside the neck of oil bottle, this would be quite handy
    .

    •  

      That's my plan…I freaking hate oil mess ;)

    •  

      I think even if it doesn’t i am happy to fill in 5L bottles after few oil changes for a drop off at council, should do the trick, like OP said if your aim is better give it a try, price is very tempting

    Great deal and just in time for oil change. Bought it

    I just pour my old oil into the empty new oil container after I’ve changed it. Then take the container to Supercheap to dispose. Not sure why you’d need this

    •  

      No old container for a start and my car sure doesn't take 10l which the new oil container is
      ;)

      •  

        Ah good point. Mine takes just about 5 litres which is what I buy in so it’s easy for me

    •  

      You hold an empty oil container under the drain hole with a funnel or something?

      •  

        Nah I have an oil pan for draining. Then pour the new oil into the car then pour the old oil from the pan into the now empty container.

        Buying this means you have to dispose the old oil somewhere and keep the container.

    I already have a oil pan for draining but it is the typical open top ones.. no issues with aiming and filling up the empty container at the end of the job but what I hate is cleaning up the oil pan after. I use rags to wipe up as best I can and just leave it as is.

    With this Oil Container on offer, I could drain my oil in it, transfer into the 5L empty container for disposal, wipe any small drips and then just cap it off and i'm done!
