I usually buy motor oil in case of 6 or 12 bottles. As I use a bottle, I put the cap back on, and place it upside down back in the box to let the remaining oil drip to the new "bottom".

TroyBoy Lol,that reminds me of my dad. He did something similar to that around the same time period. He worked at a Phillips 66 station and would collect the oil back into a empty can and then sell the can when it was full. He said that he kept that money for himself, since he had already sold it.

My funnel storage/drain system

Thought I'd post this up. Made it a couple of years ago. Used an old chunk of stainless trench drain I found in a dumpster, scrap PVC and scrap lumber. It works great, is completely out of the way and takes up no room at all! And, the ATF jug doesn't even get remotely full!
