Not very detailed, I want to know how far apart my feet should be, which direction the lighting should be, optimum wind direction and what radio station I should be listening to laugh

This thread should be in the Humor forum. smile

I use a 165 mm wide funnel with an 80 mm long spout which has a diameter of 20 mm and pour at the rate of 1/4 Liter per second. grin2 Never had any spills. wink

That works only if your oil has smart molecules.

Anti-glug sideways pouring works great with windshield washer because alcohol doesn't have smart molecules. They stagger all over the place.

Are we going to start seeing marijuana-based washer fluid now that it is legal in so many places???

Tests show that the molecules just sit there, contemplating their gluons.

this! this works for all jugs too...

Don't forget the correct oil pouring etiquette calls for your little pinky to be up in the air!

The correct way to pour oil in your engine is to get somebody else to do it...

Some oil bottles come with an imprinted figure near the neck that shows you the correct way of pouring the oil.
