If no-one bought them, they would soon pack that stupid idea in.  :D

Who wants to crawl under a car when you don't have to?  ::)
As the Shag has a sump plug, as well as the dedicated, built in sucky sucky tube, I'd like to drain properly.

But the fikkin' undertrays are a PITA to get off, due to 50 million screws.

Hence the use of a Pela  :y

On one occasion I removed the oil from the Smart using the Pela before I removed the sump pan, there was next to nothing left in there.  ;)

AA - as I had my pump out yesterday, I took the opportunity to compare to the MM one, and it is absolutely identical :y.  Obviously, the Lidl one was a 1/3rd of the price, but who knows when they will next have them.

I found the key is to have the engine oil really hot - ie, straight after a drive, else it can take 15-20mins to suck it out.

I did take it for a drive first, took about 5 minutes to pump 4.5 ltrs out.

I've been paying the local garage 25 a shot to change the oil (I provide the oil and filter) so it's nearly paid for itself.

I can't crawl under cars anymore :(

I missed the Lidl one, unfortunately :(
