Engine oil drain tap : replace by a Quick Valve ®

Quick Valve is a drain valve that fits in your engine sump tap thread, replacing the original plug. Installing it makes further drains much easier and cleaner as it avoids screwing / unscrewing the plug, changing the gasket etc. Also as it is provided with a flexible hose, it allows dirty oil to be cleanly directed into a container.
