What oil extractor are you using?


Attempted changing the oil for the first time last week before the maiden voyage and just have a cheap Harbor Freight extractor. I pumped for an hour and got maybe a half quart.

Just trying to not break the bank on one of these and a manual pump is fine as long as it works. I know for best results the oil should be warm.

Any suggestions? West Marine pumps are about $60. I have an oil pan I can pump into as well.

Thanks! This forum has been great so far
