    Usually by you warming the car up first? The pumped pipe normally goes to the bottom of the sump, on mine once you pump the air out of the receiver you can feel when pipe hits the bottom of the sump.

    To be fair, unless you take off the sump even a conventional drain won't remove all of it.

    I use a Sealy one, slightly dearer but you can get spares for it.

















    • 6.5 litre Capacity
    • Constructed from composite materials
    • Great for the extraction of all types of engine, transmission and lubricating oils
    • Also suitable for low viscosity fluids such as water
    • Uses probes to drain engine oil through the dipstick hole

    To be bluntly honest I was thinking obliquely. A suction pump with 9 litres of oil plus the weight of the thing might be quite a hand full to handle weight wise. Oil is about .9kg a litre. 9 litres of oil would be at least 9kg's dead weight plus the weight of the tool.

    I would struggle to hold that kind of weight level enough to decant it to an empty oil can safely, or whatever other container you use.

    This is the one I use. Yes it can handle petrol, water, brake fluid...

    Excellent point Trevor, thank you - I never even considered the weight. Sealey have been around for years too, so it looks like it would be worth the extra few bob.

    The oil you drain off is no heavier than a bucket of water.

    I think that was maybe a miscalc, doing it so quickly - at 0.9kg per litre, it would be around 6kg for 6.5 litres; however, the sense remains - lifting and walking at the same time would remain a challenge for me. I have checked, and the oil capacity of mine is 6 litres, so the Sealey one would do.

    With regards to sludge etc in the engine sump...

    It's been over 20 years since I last found any.

    And if you take out the sump plug, the chances are that any sludge will still stay in the sump pan anyway.

    Blimey Steve!

    80kg bucket of oil?

    80kg is probably more than our pal Lost One weighs!

    I had difficulty lobbing our daughter's 30kg suitcase into the car yesterday!
