Outboard oil change tip...

Maybe everybody else knew this except me.. BUT...

I just noticed today that the screw thread on a 1.5ltr coke bottle fits into the screw thread of a suzuki dt115 oil filler - so by cutting a coke bottle in half, you can easily make a very stable funnel to help when refilling the oil after an oil change..

Works great - so now you can get all the oil into the engine - even when its windy - or when the filler cap is at head height....I hate getting oil everywhere..
