There's not a lot of information out there on using this extractor for cars, because I think most people buy it for boats instead. So I'm going to talk about how well it works on changing the oil in your car.

In summary, it works great. It's really nice being able to change your oil on your own time and at your own home without getting dirty. I'm never going to Jiffy Lube again. It even works great on my lawnmower.

Using the extractor is very easy. Just remove your dipstick, insert the extractor's tube into the dipstick hole until the end reaches the bottom of the oil pan (it might take some practice to get a feel for this part). Once everything is in place, pump 10-20 times. This will cause a the extractor to suck out the oil like a straw. It takes about 15 minutes for 3 quarts. That's also why I recommend the 6-liter model instead of the 2.5-liter one, so that you can suck out all the oil in one shot.

Some people wonder whether all of the oil is removed this way. Unfortunately, I can't really speak to that, because that would require me to open the drain plug and investigate. However, the consensus from stuff I've read on the Internet is that the extractor does remove as much oil as the traditional method.

Because changing my oil is so easy with the extractor, I always change my oil on time. Previously, I drove for thousands of miles past my "due date" because stopping for an oil change was too inconvenient. The extractor should be used after the engine has been running. The oil is less viscous and the contaminants are stirred up, making the extractor more effective.

Also, please remember that your old oil must be properly recycled. Most mechanic shops will accept your old oil (I put it in a plastic orange juice container), just call ahead to make sure.

I used this product with no problems for a couple oil changes
and it was convenient and clean. But then the flexible tube
got a little worn and the flexible plastic sheathing that
covers the spring steel tube developed several cracks.
With the cracks the tube cannot hold a vacuum rendering
the product totally worthless. None of the resellers have
a clue about replacement tubes, and Pela themselves are
totally unreachable. Three times in the last year I've gotten
zero response to email inquiries and the last email simply bounced.
I'd like to recommend this product but can't.

If you're going to buy a Pela extractor then get the one with
the hard plastic tubing rather than the more flexible plastic
covered spring steel tubing. The latter will eventually crack
and then it's done.

[edit]Some months after I created this review, I realized I could
fix the extraction tube with heat shrink tubing
from the local hardware store. Cut off the old plastic,
found a heat shrink tubing size slightly larger than the
spring metal tube, slide it on, hit it with a heat
gun, and it's good as new. Still never heard from Pela though.

I use this on a VW Jetta and it works well. The dipstick tube is like the flexible sheathing that covers bike brake cables, so it's flexible, but stays on the bottom of the oil pan. You just pump it up and about ten minutes later the oil is drained. Plus, on VWs diesel you can use it to suck out the oil filter casing. I wish it was easier to get all the oil out of the tube, or reservoir after use. Drips can cause stains.

I was looking for a device to drain the oil from my lawn/garden equipment. The "traditional" method usually ends up with oil all over the machine and driveway. This device is easy to use, fills the bill nicely, and gets ALL the oil out! A couple of points: Warm up the engine thoroughly - the oil flows out better and any particulates are in suspension. The extractor handled hot oil without a complaint. Also, the vacuum pump is attached by a non-locking gasket, and suction is applied on the upstroke. So you can forget about using the pump with one hand while holding the extraction wand with the other. Not a major problem, just requires some getting used to.

This one is much better the the two MityVacs that I owned in the past - one of my MityVac failed on the pump and the other has a vacuum leak. In comparing with the MityVac, the tube for the dip stick is a bit narrower but stiffer, it does take a while to extract the oil. I have a 6-liter oil engine - took around 30 minutes to extract all of the oil out.

Pros:
. Hold the vacuum much better (does not mean you have to pump less)
. Less messy due to a singular tube
. A lot easier and clean to empty out the oil
. Easier to transport if you don't want to empty out before getting to recycling plant. But I would still recommend to empty the oil to containers first.
. Smaller and easier to store

Cons:
. Need to pump a few more times to develop the vacuum due to the smaller pump. But once it is there, only need to re-pump after around 1 liter of extraction
. The pump just sit on the top of the bottle's rubber seal, so it must be vertically aligned to ensure effective pumping action. A bit tricky toward the end due to lesser volume of space still in the bottle after 4-5 liter of extraction
