After the first changes....if you use gallon jugs, then you will have empties to fill from the Fumoto valve.
The first changes is the fun one, after that....

Been there and done that. It is slow going and can be messy. I spill less with the Fumoto directly into the jugs and you don't have to handle it twice.

I used the Motoercraft 10W-30 oil and all I could get it in was quart containers. It will be easy to fill those quart containers back up with the Fumoto valve with the nipple! Easily wirth the $25 to not have 14 quarts of oil all coming at you at once! We have had one on our semi for years and I have always loved it!

The purpose in my thread was to mention that there IS a pan available that IS big enough to hold the oil.Notice that even though I have the drain pan, I still ordered a Fumoto valve for the next time...

Looks like the 03-05 6.0L psd takes the "Product Code: Ford F111 N " valve. Anyone remeber off the top of their head if that is correct?

Off the top of my head, that sounds correct for the 6.0. But to play it safe, since I try not to use my debit/credit card on the net,- just call the guy, tell'em exactly what you are installing in. He knows quick which one you need. I think the nipple is worth it.

F-111 is what I ordered and the "N" afterwards indicates that the optional hose nipple is included.

Just had an Oil Guard system installed w/last oil change. Haven't been under the truck yet to see the set up. Can I use Fumoto with the Oil Guard system?

Unless the return oil hose was connected to the oil pan drain (not supposed to be), you can install a Fumoto valve.

You won't regret it. I think it is the best extra money I have spent on this truck. Now if I could find the same type thing for the fuel/water separator.

We love the one on the MH and the kids do the draining but I do the filter after it gets cool. Last week we received one for the F700 429 engine but will wait for double digit temps to install.

2nd best for me. Number one is a coolant filter. One saves mess, the other is peace of mind and happier equipment. ie; egr and oil coolers + water pump.

Had one on my 04 for 80K, then moved it to my 06 and now have 160K on it. I wouldn't go without one.
