Thumbs up Recommended: "Oil Boy" Extractor by Tempo

I Purchased this oil extractor on Ebay ($62.00 with shiping) after reading about Topsiders here. One word sums up its performance: Spectacular.

I have been really neglectful of scheduled oil changes because I don't have the ability, or desire, to do it myself, and never seem to find the time to go to oil-change places.

This Oil Boy extractor will change that since it took less than 10 minutes to suck out approx. 7 quarts (I over-filled it a bit) and replace it with new. I spilled exactly 4 drops (only because it was my first time using it and I was a bit sloppy).

I realize that letting the car drain overnight from the bottom is the best way to go, but vacuum extractors make it easy to do oil changes more frequently. In my case, because I was so negligent in the past, I will be doing them weekly until my cocoa-colored oil is amber again.
