The only thing that could make this better would be a cap on the drain spout - but a fantastic deal for $8.
Might grab one for coolant....

15L is pretty big right? Is it better to get a smaller one for oil changes? I use ramps to do oil changes so the clearance isn't the best.

Shows height of 6 inches. You don't have that much clearance?
Stay strong, situation always looks harder and that it will never end when you are in the middle of it, but remember past experiences, everything has an ending.

I usually toss in some kitty litter or sawdust to soak up any residual oil then wipe it out with a rag.

You definitely don't want to "clean" it with soap and water and have the motor oil go down the drain. You don't need to clean it at all. Just pour out as much as you can, then tilt it on something and let it drip for an hour more to get every drop you can. Then there should only be a thin film of oil and metal shavings (from your engine). You can just store that away as is until your next oil change or wipe it with a paper towel and dispose of the paper towel with your old oil filter and old oil at your municipal environmental waste depot.

It will only contain used motor oil or other fluids, so it doesn't need to be clean.

As an alternative, I've been using a dollar store container (supposed to be a dish pan) for years. Once the old oil is drained and I fill up the engine with fresh oil, I then use a funnel to pour the old oil into the oil bottle. This drain pan has the integrated spout, which is convenient, but you don't need anything special to hold oil and pour it out.

Oh yeah, you're right. I'm confused now cause when you compare it with this one: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B00JJ6 ... EEQB&psc=1

It has the same dimensions and looks identical but that one only holds 8L. Anyways, for the price you can't go wrong so I'll just order and see.
The Amazon picture in the description says 4 gallon capacity so there’s inconsistency in the Amazon listing itself. I’m going with 4gal/15L.

Shipping is free. You’ll get an estimate of the cost, but when you go to pay it’ll be free with Canada Post.

Anyone used this for a large capacity change? My truck uses 13 L of oil. Is 15L full to the brim or can I still move it afterwards?
