I have always changed my own oil on all my vehicles, and I have had a Fumoto Valve for every one of them.
If you change your own oil, these valves are a life-saver if you're tired of having to remove the oil plug, and
can help reduce how much of mess you make.
I have had the same valve (F106S) and elbow (L-001) for well over 500,000 miles and can vouch for their
reliability. I know I would never go without one. :-)
If you're worried about the valve opening, you don't need to. The valve is spring loaded and needs to be lifted
before it is turned. However, they do make some clips (listed below) to ease those worries.
I thought I'd throw some information and pictures down for anyone interested for themselves.
Above are the available valves available that will work for our Mirages. I have the F106S valve and L-001
90 degree elbow. I bought a 3/8" hose locally instead of from them.
For a small one-time fee, you'll have years of reliable service.
Above are pictures installed on my Mirage.
If you have any questions please throw them my way.
