Here's Why You've Been Pouring Oil The Wrong Way

Blog Feature

We've shipped your LIQUI MOLY oil change kit and now there are jugs of fresh oil staring you down. You're about ready to fill your oil and what do you know, your funnel can't be found. So now you have to play that delicate game of pouring directly into your oil fill without spilling a drop.

You're all lined up, you begin to pour and you've actually hit your mark. Then it happens. The dreaded glug mid-pour, making oil miss the fill and douse your previously spotless valve cover. Not only did you just waste brand new oil, but now you have to scrub your engine clean (these hand wipes work great for quick cleanups by the way). There's a very simple way to prevent this - just don't lose your funnel.

With funnel or without, how do you normally pour oil? Probably the way that everyone else does; the way that the bottle design makes it seem like you should. This isn't the case, however. In the video below, Nate shows us the better way to pour and explains how it works.
