What oil drain pans do you guys have?

Hi all,

Just wondering what kind of oil drain pans you guys have. I had this one and it's horrible. Both openings doesn't seal properly no matter how I tighten it and it creates a mess.



I ended up buying another one this past weekend. I didn't take a picture of it but it's similar to this. We'll see how this goes.

i have the wal-mart version of the 2nd one. the end seals up pretty nicely. and perfect size to drain back out into the 1qt bottle or the gallon ones. i never used the upper 2 little screw things tho, i never really move my pan and if i do its near empty.

I am pretty sure you have the same one I have then. It holds 9 quarts and has two small screw openings in the middle. Would be nice if they have gaskets on the openings so it seals better. But I think this Walmart one's design is alot better than my 1st one. I would properly trust having this pan in my trunk while I transport the used oil. I wouldn't trust the first one I had. It spills everywhere.

I used to have the same one shown in the 1st pic but got tired of washing and cleaning the oil residue from inside the pan. Now I just use empty plastic gallon milk or Arizona iced tea containers (I prefer the latter because it has thicker walls and a larger opening, and I love AZ iced tea)

Cleaning oil residue INSIDE the pan? Why you need to clean the pan?
