On the fence on this issue for years

Got tired of removing pan on the 400E and took the plunge. After hearing about hot oil problems with some units, I finally went with the "Oil Boy" brand from Boater's World ($49.00). It is constructed of much higher quality materials than the other units that I have looked at "Topsider", etc. Used it this past weekend on very hot oil with great result.

Won't go back to bottom drain again as this is too easy. BTW, Boater's World had an electric model for $129.00 that tempted me as I had been thinking about making my own with the $65.00 Proven Pumps model pump, but now that I have tried a high quality suction device that doesn't need priming, this appears to be the best way to go.

Keep us posted.
