Editor's Notes

February 27, 2019:

Draining oil from a vehicle can be a messy job if you don't have the right equipment, specifically a oil lift drain with a large funnel that can be positioned close to where that black gold is exiting the automobile. Luckily, this list is full of them. If you work at one of those 10-minute oil change shops, then you'll need something with a very large reservoir, like the Goodyear 30-Gallon. Even if your shop isn't dedicated to solely lube jobs, but gets a lot of customers every day for all kinds of automotive issues, you'll want something with at least a 15- to 20-gallon capacity, like the Arksen AU-20024, XtremepowerUS 66076, Lincoln 3601, Neiko Ridge 20710, and Dragway Tools LD-3281, which are all pressure evacuated. Finally, those who don't often find themselves draining a lot of oil, but still want to keep the right tool for the job on hand for when the need strikes, will want to look at the affordable Lisle 11102 or Dannmar DO-8G, both of which have a smaller, eight-gallon capacity and won't take up too much of your garage space.
