    What size hose will i need to run the oil filter drain down to the pan. I can't find Chris's DIY....I know he mentioned what size tubing to use.

    I mean you gotta have the right hose for the job... Thats what she said!!

    I've tried it both ways...the hose works WAY better. Get a section of 5/16" inside diameter hose and hose clamp. I leave mine in place and have it coming out the hole in the skid plate. After it quits dripping I cap off the end with a plastic screw type plug...never had one drop on the driveway.

    I tried the tube...using the water bottle works better, faster, cheaper.

    this sounds like a good idea. i may have to try it and have it attach to my fumoto drain valve so they drop from the same area.

    I just stick an empty quart oil can under it and catch it into that. Saves me the time of the hose and cleans up just as quick/clean.
