Hi peterw

Sucking nearly 6 odd ish?? litres out of the 10 odd mil dip stick hole sounds time consuming!! But in your case it could well be worth while. Do you have a picture/link of this device you can post so we can all have a gander? Sounds interesting...

scavenger oil pump

I used one of these on a yacht engine ( no access to the sump ) it worked well enough but would not remove any gunge sitting in the sump. With modern engines and oils this is probably not an issue. But you will still have the filter to access to change?

But the dipstick tube doesn't protrude all the way to the bottom of the sump. And as mentioned, there's the oil filter to do anyway. Seems a good way to do only half a job if you ask me.
