Must have made a HELL of a mess inside the shop vac!

Also, 52 quarts?!?, Seriously, 13 gallons???

Not at ll! Dry as a bone. Apparently the oil is too heavy to be sucked in. It just creates a vacuum so when the drain plug off the oil doesn't come out!
Happy trails!

We installed our Fumoto this way. Shop vac creating negative pressure by holding the hose in the filler tube. DW held it there and I crawled under, removed the old plug and installed the Fumoto. Slurp slurp noise but not one drop came out. I didn't believe it would work when I read about it (right here) but it did indeed work. YMMV
