For all you F150 plastic oil drain plug owners you know why you're here. Use code "SURVEY" for 15% off your next order. I bought one and did a survey, they sent me a code, figured everyone can use it.

I would buy one of these because it keeps you from crawling under my car?

With the F150's new plastic oil pan and plastic drain plug the oil is uncontrollable and spills all over the place, all 10 quarts. So this is a solution, kinda like Fumoto.

And now the bad news....

The Ronin valve (~$80 pre discount) is a spring loaded "closed-at-rest" valve which screws into the pan's hole.
You thread a SEPARATE PIECE into it after removing the dust cap to press against its spring and allow oil flow.

It all'll boil down to the separate piece which you can easily misplace.

Plastic oil pans....what next?

Scotty Kilmer featured something like that.

I haven't looked under the new F-150 yet. Any reason why the Fumoto won't work?

I went to Fumoto's site and entered the Ford F-150 year and engine involved. Fumoto has none for the application.
I'd bet it's because of the "keyed" or heavily lugged design of the Ford Ecoboosts' pans' holes.
A Fumoto is a simple, small screw in valve.
Hardware to fit those Fords would require different tooling for limited applications resulting in a one pound product.

Any reports on plastic Ford pans getting cracked?

Maybe it's just not populated onto the Fumoto site yet. Key is to find out the thread pitch.

After doing a little reading on the Ford F1 50 forums, it seems that the Fumoto once installed, drips on exactly the same place as the factory opening does. It's simply a bad design, and you need some kind of hose with the Ronin to direct the flow.

What would Henry say, indeed! Another example of the engine team and the body team not working together.

So kind of like the old Fram Sure Drain?

Looked at the current F150 drain, looks like a horrible design. Why fix something that is not broken?

...

Fumoto makes a drain with a nipple that you can attach a hose to.

The Ronin also has an additional piece that screws in to attach a hose to bring the oil right in to a bucket. A hose is not required though. If you loose the second piece you can just unscrew it and drain the oil just like the original oil plug that came with the truck. This Ronin unit way to expensive but without it you are sure to make a mess each time. I have not used it to drain oil yet but so far it appears to be a simple and easy to use accessory. The nice feature is the part that you screw in to drain the oil has threads, this allows you to regulate how fast or slow the oil comes out. They have a video on their site showing how it works. I will post of a review after my next change if anyone wants to know The only reason I posted this is because of the cost. As I said, its way to expensive for what it is, so 15% will at least provide a little financial lube. No big deal if you have a shop change your oil but if you are a DIY as Im sure most folks are on BITOG the Ronin is probably a good investment if you plan to keep the vehicle for quite a long time.

There's also another brand just like it sold on Amazon.

If you go to a plumbing supply, they can thread a ball valve for you.
