Anyone use these? Every time I need a funnel their always super dirty with either dirt or sawdust. Usually the latter. I used to buy like 30 packs of three at the local auto parts store. Just called the two parts stores near me and nobody had a clue or even cared to look for it on the computer.

Are we talking about the throwaway paper cones? Ive seen them, never used one. I stuff a blue shop towel through the spout of my oil funnel when not in use to keep the spout clean. The bowl can be easily wiped out when needed.

i use the same plastic one every time--and I put it in a ziplock bag, and store it in the same 5 ga bucket of oil change stuff, so I know exactly where it is when I need it--and it is clean. You might be able to get one at the local dollar store, for less than a pack of paper funnels.

I still use the plastic funnels for old oil and that kind of thing.

I had a pack of them from who knows where many years ago. I know they used to have them at gas stations at a cup dispenser like thing a long time ago also.

I do like SilverFusion though, I have 1 funnel that is my "clean" fill funnel, and after each use I cram a paper towel in it and it is stored upside down in the little tub I keep other funnels, filter wrenches and other oil change stuff in. It is always clean and I know where it is at.
I also keep a smaller funnel under my hood. I keep a blue rag stuffed in it inside a plastic bag. I rarely use it, but is there in case I do (actually last time I used it was on my brother in laws truck when he was low at the lake house).

Here's a list of distributors, including Grainger which oughta be easy in Houston. Also says Sinclair branded gas stations & truck stops

http://www.fastfunnel.com/distributors.htm

These look like more what I remember seeing in gas station dispensers.

https://www.amazon.com/Konie-Cups-10-0KRF-Paper-Funnel/dp/B004JJU37S

https://www.freshwatersystems.com/p-9496...ves-of-125.aspx

Smaller quantities available here

http://www.multitechproducts.com/paper-funnels-disposable

https://www.pilotmall.com/product/Disposable-Oil-Funnel-10-Pack/aircraft-supplies

Personally I use plastic funnels wiped clean after each use with a disposable rag from Rags in a Box, stored in a loosely tied grocery bag for each. One for fresh motor oil, one for used motor oil, ATF, PS fluid, gear oil, etc., and one with a long skinny neck for fresh ATF. I carry a second long skinny neck plastic funnel in my truck so I can add any needed fluid cleanly but it hasn't been used yet.

Pal (a BIG luber at work) has always had a stack of 'em on his shelves.
We ALWAYS fetched a plastic funnel when the need arose.

He'd only use 'em with cheese cloth to strain paint.

Really, they were unusably small.

I keep funnels dedicated for certain fluids.

I have the same orange funnel in the link I bought from Napa years ago. It is capped on both ends.

The paper oil funnels?
Yep, I remember them at gas stations. I guess we are showing our age.

Those were also the days when most gas stations had an auto service bay (or two).
