Since you mentioned that ..... our shop is small (4 techs) and the only real "pump" we have is for bulk oil. You'd really laugh at some of the creative ways we've came up with to add oil, coolant, or brake fluid to some of the various chassis.

Coolant on a DP is the worst. Often in involves lifting the bed or removing the closet floor.

... and you have to in through the front door all the way into the bedroom. This is why it takes time to work on MHs. On some rigs you almost have to put booties on or run around in socks.

We have some VERY WIDE tape ... about 24" that's rolled up sticky side out. We roll it on the carpets when we know we're going to be in & out a lot.

What makes me a nervous wreck is carrying a filled fuel filter through the house into someone's bedroom for the Caterpillars. They generally have one up high on the side of the engine.

Mike I buy the 5.1 Qt bottle because of the cost. I pour into Qt bottle to add to motor. Anyone know why 5.1 Qts not 5?
