How do you add oil

First oil change in my Cummings ISB today. Eaiser than expected, but I'm curious what others do to add oil. No way to pour it directly in. Pic add of my makeshift oil pipe

I try to buy oil in 2.5gal jugs or even a 5gal bucket.
I use a manual fluid transfer pump from TSC. I cut of the curved pipe end so that it's fairly straight and insert a vinyl hose from there to the oil fill.

Before I started doing was a major pain. Good luck.
