It does not save me the trouble of replacing the oil filter or cleaning up the oil that spills out of that. it does save me the trouble of having to replace gaskets but negates the magnet that I had built into the drain plug, and cannot put a magnet on this.
It does do everything it claims to do, but they must have a great advertisement because, this really saves about two minutes worth of time, but does prevent the unlikely stripping of a drainpug threads. I mean the claims are 100% true, they did not lie at all, but it’s just one of those things where you’re much more excited to get it and think you need it, but are underwhelmed when you use it. It’s not a bad product at all, but really unless you have a hard to reach plug, and need to hook a hose to it, really is at least comparable to a popcorn button on a microwave versus entering the time manually, you still have to get the popcorn, put in in the microwave, press popcorn button or enter in “2:15”, wait for it to cook, take it out and clean up. All the stuff you don’t want to do, you still have to do, it’s really the easiest part of and oil change replaced, but none of the stuff you actually don’t like doing.
I will say, getting an oil sample is easier, but I don’t have to do anything to get under my truck. I used to use a manual oil pump or siphon with aquarium tube, but again, saves me just a small amount of time.
Am I happy I got it? Kind of. Do I regret it buying it? A little, but if it was like $10-$15 instead of $30 I wouldn’t have. Does it make changing oil easier? A little easier? Did they lie at all? No. Was I excited to buy it? Yes. Did I get all the benefits I pictured in my head? No. Will you have to do the same amount of work if you didn’t purchase this? Yep. Is it marketed right? You betcha. Did I get played? Not exactly. Would I buy it for other vehicles? Probably not... but it’s really not badly made or a liability, and saves about as much time as using a spork instead of a spoon and fork.
So brilliantly made with quality and pride but what I’d really appreciate and find a necessecity to have would be something that facilitates an easier filter change on a first generation Toyota Tacoma. Because the real hinderence is getting the skid plate off or skipping it and spilling oil all over it with less room to work. I they can do that, I would gladly pay $30 dollars for that, maybe even double. For this item however, really just takes having to get a socket wrench out of the equation, everything is the same.
Now I get to either figure out how to get it out of my drain pan, or order a new drain pan. Not what I was hoping to do...
I now have an EZ Drain Valve on my latest Toyota, and while it appears to be a die cast metal of some kind, as opposed to the Fomoto which was all-brass, the EZ seems very well made and even has a little gripper on the open handle the Fomoto didn't have. The opener slides open a bit easier too.
The only thing I wish is that it would drain a bit faster and more complete. When I leave it open to drain all night, it drains the pan just fine, but sometimes I need to do a quick oil change. Since the nastiest oil comes out first when you open the valve, I'm not too concerned about getting the last drop of old oil out, but I do wait til it's a drip every 10 seconds or so.
SUMMARY... The EZ Drain Valve is WELL worth the money. It speeds up oil changes and makes oil draining less messy.
Update 5/3/17: coming up on three years and valve has not leaked. Neither has the Fumoto on wife's ES350 but I prefer the EZ valve.
Note, there have been some complaints on the valve opening, usually when struck from debris, but some people claiming they didn't run over anything. This is hard to believe, but a mini hose clamp can be easily installed to prevent the handle from sliding to the drain position - see pic.

It will be nice if they send gasket with it.
I've been looking around for just one ring.
