    The Fumoto oil drain valve people are offering a 15% discount through
    the end of the year. I'm posting their announcement here as a public
    service. Please let's not get drawn into another long discussion
    regarding whether these will drain the final eighth of an inch of oil
    from your oil pan.

    I will attest to the fact that they work, and also to the value of
    reading the supplemental instructions that state that the valve might be
    kind of tight the first time, so you are advised to open and close it a
    few times, possibly using pliers, before installing.

    I have one. Excellent quality of construction and leak proof.
    The only drawback I find they have is as following.
    The first time I installed one on my 96 Legacy, the little locking
    lever was tucked behind the valve and I tought this was cool and
    probably bilt in at the conception stage.
    I had then to replace the oil pan and on the new oil pan, when the valve
    is properly torqued, the little lever is hanging down and could catch on
    something and maybe open the valve if I'm unlucky.
    I intend to use a tichker whasher at my next oil change.
    So if you buy one, have more than one washer to make an adjustement if

    Fumoto valves do not drain all the oil unless modified. Look at
    www.Scoobymods.com to see how to modify the valve. I personally like the
    security of a oil drain plug. eddie
