The difference is that when ever the stock bolt is removed there is metal on the magnet.

Maybe the magnet is there for the break-in period, but provides a peace of mind.
As one other person stated I have put an earth magnet right below the valve and I pull it off once the oil is draining.

I hear ya, but it gets filtered before going anywhere important. Now if there were a large enough particle that could damage the pump (or plug the oil side of the oil cooler) - I guess that's a valid concern, but not very common issue (unless something is dropped during engine work). JMHO.

I view it this way... International and the European company (actual designers) designed in the magnetic drain plug for a reason. I don't do oil analysis so I decided to keep it stock.

The second thing I did to my truck after the coolant filter was the Fumoto drain valve. It was worth the money and means no mess.

The metal is minimal that the mag pics up, but for me, I do not like the thought that those and other particles will go through the LPP

fumoto plus

i love the fumoto and also installed the bronze replacement for the 6 mm plug that drains the water out of the fuel filter.got a big dose of water from a station with old tanks and have had to drain the filter 5 times in 2 days.pretty simple now. just turn it out with your fingers.

We added the Fumoto valve to the 2010 F-150 that we bought last summer on the first oil change and it was so nice to have when it came time for the second oil change.

I've had one on my 04 for almost 15 years and never had an issue. Makes changing oil a breeze. I wish they came from the factory with one.

I rarely recommend brands, but Fumoto is decent quality....................use these fairly regularly on all vehicles ---- block drains, oil pans, etc..............
