    Amazon Basics and the Costco Kirkland oil are probably the same oil (they're both made by Warren Distribution). I'm running the Kirkland oil and it seems to be fine so far, but only have about 1000 miles on it.

    Mine is manual pump, haven't removed a drain plug in over a decade. 10 minute oil change without having to get under the car.. oh, wait, they decided to put the freaking cartridge underneath, unlike every other Kia I've owned since 2010!

    The motor pumps directly into the bottle/jug, saves hassle of pouring oil out.
    Other than getting car on ramps, I didn't find much difficulty with the filter. And you don't need to crawl far underneath as filter is near front, where's the drain plug is further back..

    Love the idea - the ratings on that ebay link you had make me run far away..

    Are you just throwing your bottles/jugs of used oil in the trash? In the USA, we tend to take used oil to a disposal facility (my closest parts store) - so I just take the pump and empty it there.

    No, I meant the ratings on the pump - 3 or 4 "not worth it, cheap, broke after 2 uses" types of comments about the pump, not the seller..

    My pump is a "sealed container", but whatever. It's served me for over a decade without question, so..

    I've used it about half a dozen times and it's still working.
    It only cost about $20.
    A bargain considering it makes oil changing easier & the fact that more oil is drawn out!
