I think it's a great idea. No mess along that cross member, and no fuss for engine oil change outs.
Just take it off when you have drained the oil and check the sump screen.

Have had one fitted to my 02 Hilux for a year now. Great idea :D . As mentioned earlier, no removal of bash plate, no more mess, drain oil straight back into old container. It takes a little longer to drain but saves time R/R parts. More time to work on that beer. :lol:

Is the F103N the valve I need for my 2013 sr5 diesel hilux? After changing the oil for the first time recently I need a fumoto! Thanks

Good idea but far too slow to drain - I can clean up the mess it saves in half the time it takes to drain....

It does drain slower since the hole is smaller but i normally let the oil drain for an hour anyway while i go do something else.

After doing my 15th (yes i calculated it) oil change, with the right bits of hose/cut bottles/big bucket, I can do an oil change without dropping a drop. No fumotoo needed, it worries me if an engine mount mount fails you might break the fumotoo off.
