Just bought the Fumoto on Amazon. Will be in stalling it in my next oil change.

Arrow Torture Tested!

I installed the Fumoto Valve several years ago in the oil pan of my Ford Super Duty.

I drove from Northern Illinois to Dawson Creek British Columbia, the start of the Alaska Highway.

I drove the Alaska Highway to Fairbanks, the entire highway loop in Alaska and 1100 miles of gravel roads in the Yukon Territory

Then back down the Alaska Highway back to Northern Illinois.

More than 8000 miles with several oil changes and no problem with the Fumoto Valve.

I highly recommend it!

Fumoto valve

Thats good to know. I installed a Fumoto oil valve on my oil change last month. Haven't had to use it yet and was wondering how it will work. Good to know others have had good results with it.

I put an EZ valve on my Duramax and love the no mess draining. It's a little slower draining this way but not a big deal.

I went for the EZ valve because at the time Fumoto used a rubber gasket that squished out if you tighten it too tight and EZ Valve used a rubber O-ring.

Instead of the safety clip I use a small wire tie for the peace of mind that the valve will stay closed

Still use the rubber gasket (AT LEAST THEY DID AS OF A YEAR AGO). Never had an issue with it coming out and I've make them tight!

X2 and on the race cars the valves get removed on engine rebuilds and we reuse the gasket a few times.

Bottom line.... whether it be Fumoto or EZ Valve you won't go wrong... Great invention...

Last oil change was a freebe from the dealership... Technician liked it too and asked where I got it.

The remote valve thing never made any sense to me.You dont get any oil on your fingers pulling the plug,then get a whole handfull when you drop the filter!

Fumato here too but do not over tighten it or it will shear.
