If you dread the mess of an engine oil change or top up, the latest funnel sets from Laser Tools could prove invaluable. Designed specifically for Volkswagen Group (part number 8301) and Renault/Nissan (8302) models, the funnels come with adaptor caps to fit securely to the car’s filler neck, so there’s no way it can tip over, leaving you free to brim the funnel with oil without holding onto it to keep things safe. Oil flows in steadily with no leakage, and there’s a transparent lower chamber to show when all the oil has gone into the engine. It’s an ingenious device and one that can be used time after time. If you plan to do the maintenance on your own car long term, it’s a small price to pay for ensuring that the job goes smoothly.
