    Looked underneath it and found the filter, no problem. But I've read elsewhere that it's a cartridge filter.

    I have a strap-type wrench already for conventional filters. Can I use that, or do I need something specialized? And if so, what?

    You should probably get the actual wrench for the canister...although i'm not sure what size it is. I'm lazy/cheap and have used home depot strap wrenches on the canisters in the past, but its less than ideal.

    Probably worth the money, $55 does seem a bit steep though. About to get one for the gf's rav4. I like to think about it this way, I am going to use it approximately 40 times. Considering me doing one full synthetic oil change is about $50 cheaper than having the dealer do it, it is worth the one time purchase of the tool to do it headache free. The ones for her rig were closer to $20 though, might wanna shop around.

    One more thing... Spin on filter FTMFW!

    You don't need a special tool for that, all you need is 3/8 rachet.

    Never used Fumoto but we used a similar product by Femco on or fleet and they were great. I checked and Femco does not make one for the Taco. Just take out the drain plug and screw this in.
