OK, I understand that this might not the obvious place for this at first glance, but the guys on the diesel forum didnt appreciate as much as I thought they would.
So last Saturday I start an oil change on my truck. I pull the plug and filter, and let it all drain while I gather everything else to finish the job. The only thing is; that I cant find my funnel. You know, the big one, not that little yellow piece of crap you use to put oil in the lawn mower. Someone has absconded with my funnel, and Ive got a truck with no oil in it! So being the DIY kind of guy that I am always looking for a work around, I start evaluating alternative funnel possibilities. That little yellow POS is out. A quick look on the shelf reveals a half a bottle of fuel treatment. I can pour the rest of that in the tank, and cut the bottom off of it .. No wait, its got a tiny little spout and Rotella-T would stop that thing up like the toilet in a burrito factory. Thats when it hit me, .. its sitting right in the top of the trash can. In less than a minute my new prized funnel was fastly secured and taking it like a champ. And the absolute best part was that it threaded perfectly into the filler tube.
Meh, Im not much of a whiskey drinker. That is a bottle that we had bought for a party back during Thanksgiving. I was just tickled that it was the same size and thread pattern as the fill cap. Ive used an empty quart of oil before, but this was a 2 ½ gallon jug of Rottela and finding something that I didnt have to hold with one hand and pour with the other was a BIG plus.
