    Good idea.
    Oil changing, much time discussion spent on oil removal, drain, siphon or pump. My own technique is to siphon and drain combined to reduce the potential mess when drain plug removed.
    However, I seem to always have a spill when refilling the Jazz as the filler is not vertically available for pouring. All the funnels on sale not deal unless another hand is on loan, the wife as an assistant not recommended.
    Thinking of buying a filler cap and adapting on some solid tubing to bring access from under the bulkhead.
    Does anyone have a good drip free fill method?

    On reflection, may just add a dent length of as large bore 'soft' vinyl pouring pipe and small bore venting pipe to oil container cap.

    "found" a measuring jug on Amazon with long spout which may give spill free pouring - Laser 3842 Measuring Jug 5 Litre.
    I prefer not to have to transfer oil from container to container but this may be necessary

    What do others use?

    Maybe this is the oil fill solution for the awkward access?
