    Has anyone tried the Fumoto Qwikvalve on their vehicle?

    I just saw this video on youtube and I got really curious. It is definitely something I will be using a lot if I got one. But how safe and reliable is it? I found a few reviews online and they're all good reviews about it. But I was hoping someone here first hand experience with this product.

    Let us know how it is when you get it. I'm just worried about it leaking under high pressure. But according to the video it has two seals(one on each side) preventing it from leaking.

    So I found out a few guys I personally know use this and have never ever had a problem with leaking or it breaking. They love it so much they use it on all their vehicles. Gonna order one of these in a couple weeks and I'll personally see how good these things are.

    Yeah in a long run i think i would be worried about it leaking or suddenly opening somehow. I would rather save myself from the hassle if it ever goes.

    Cool product but I see this as a waste of money. Factory drain plugs are good enough and cheap.

    The joys of driving a lowered car. I just think it's a waste of money and time. OEM plugs are just as good or OEM style aftermarket plugs. Few bucks a plug and you replace it maybe a few times a year, sure beats whats in the ad above.

    Many of the S2000 group uses them with great success . I thought of using it but my local Honda dealership does oil changes for 19.99 and with the hassle of disposing it and the fact that now the Acura dealership has followed suit I just let them do it .

    Plus it gives me a reason to test drive new cars while I wait
