Re: Oil drain plug

 35K?! Bite your tongue! 26k young miles, my friend. And let me throw this
out... no "new" problems.

Speaking of oil changes, in the latest Griot's Garage catalog, they are
advertising an oil "retreiver" (or some such language). This contraption
looks like a tall clear cylindrical object with a hand pump and a long thin
hose which is placed in the dipstick access hole. Has anyone seen or used
this device? The ad shows a man dressed in street clothes, the oil filter is
on a towel with a bit of oil (why isn't the oil running all over the
floor?), and the owner is happily pumping away and retreiving the oil. Seems
too good to be true, about $65 - $70. Any knowledge, anyone?
