I have one that fits directly into the oil fill on my Suburban's 5.3. One of my favorite tools.

I have one for my Honda that I've used only once. It's a neat idea but the funnel retains a lot of oil afterwards so unless you have somewhere to hang it up and drain it after use, it can be messy. There's no way to run a towel through it to clean it up.

$20 for a funnel? Mine was $1 and works just fine.

I like a good funnel, but this is ridiculous. Why not make an oil cap adapter that screws directly onto the oil bottle? Or you could set it on fire and buy a new car instead of changing the oil.

It sure is.

I actually have one of these, but I never use it

This is easy to run a paper towel through ... its big bore compared to my other half dozen funnels

I use the big mouthed Prestone funnel. Only paid a couple bucks and have had it for years.

That would not seal and hold itself like the blue funnel. itís a significant reach when the Tahoe is on ramps ... this works well

While I doubt I'd ever buy one of those myself - I just use a 1-qt motor oil bottle, cutoff 1/2 way down and turned over, as a funnel. Like this:



I can see how the filter posted by the OP could be useful, though.

Just another part to get oily that takes up space on the shelf. I prefer to patiently pour right from the bottle cleanly into the hole without spilling.

I have one with multiple attachments for different makes. It would have been awesome to have when I wrenched for a living but now it is just a convenience.
