I bought this product to store used oil for a short period of time. 2 out of 4 cans leaked from the bottom seams. I returned to my shop the following morning and discovered oil on my shop floor. I would never buy another one of these cans nor recommend buying one. A empty gallon anti-freeze or oil jug would work better.

    Cap is so flimsy made that it will not screw on and fit tight at all. One jug worked ok other just pops off from new after i poured oil into it.

    A must have container for DIY oil changes

    Cons

      Best Uses

        Comments about FloTool Dispos-Oil Recycle Jug:

        I do all of my oil changes at home in my garage. And for years I have always poured my drain pan of used oil back into the new 5 quart oil jug after finishing the job. Works great except for the fact that the 5 qt jug has a very small diameter opening and it was easy to spill oil during the transfer. Having this oil recycle jug is great because the spout on my drain pan fits inside the opening on the container making the transfer very easy and mess free. The 12 quart capacity is great, should be able to get two standard oil changes in the container before having to go recycle it. Overall I would buy this again, honestly I might buy a second jug.

        Convinct for home oil changes

        By 

        from Olathe, ks

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about FloTool Dispos-Oil Recycle Jug:

        If you do your own oil changes at home this is a great way to dispose of the oil. Solid plastic construction, not at all flimsy. Wide mouth on the top of the jug. The online picture makes the mouth look a little narrow, however the mouth is plenty wide enough to easily poor oil into with the need for a extra funnel. The lid screws on very tightly and is thick enough to withstand over tightening, so it will not deform if you try to put it on tight. I can put this in the trunk of my car to take used oil back to Advance Auto for disposal and not have to worry about it leaking in my car.

        Good jug

        Comments about FloTool Dispos-Oil Recycle Jug:

        A good jug, holds 3 gallons, its nice to have when you're doing more than one oil change. I have 3 cars in the immediate family and when all of them need an oil change I can do them all without a trip to get rid of the old oil until on finished all 3. The jug has a wide opening to make it easier to pour oil into it without making a mess.

        Leaked all over my truck bed and shop floor!

            This product leaked oil all over my truck bed and shop floor. When I saw oil in my truck bed, I thought it was because the jug had tipped over and leaked out the cap, but when I put it in my garage and came back the next day, I discovered oil all over the floor because there was a leak in the bottom. This happened on the second trip to the oil recycling center. Proceed with caution and coddle it like a baby I guess if you really want it...

              Comments about FloTool Dispos-Oil Recycle Jug:

              The Recycle Can was fairly cheap and when it arrived, it seemed a little flimsy. However, after using it to drain my oil pan into it, my mind was changed. First, the large mouth opening on top makes it a snap to drain into. This was a big plus for me. It also makes it quick to drain out at the oil recycling center. It holds enough oil for a change or two, but that's plenty to minimize my recycle trips. Overall this was a good purchase and will serve well to anyone doing their own oil changes at home, though its small size probably impairs its usefulness for a shop environment.

                Not much to really say about it. It's a very easy way to take my old engine oil to a recycling facility. Nice, wide mouth for fast filling. Flat bottom and handle for transporting.

                  Comments about FloTool Dispos-Oil Recycle Jug:

                  Great idea with an easy to use opening but poor construction makes them worthless. At first when the threads were clean it seemed to work fine but after using these and getting a little oil on the threads they will not get or stay sealed. I have everything aligned properly but if I attempt to tighten the cap with more force than an infant the cap just "pops" and is lose again. I bought three of these intending to use two and give the third as a gift; they all have the same problem. I didn't want to be embarrased by giving my father junk so I had to keep the third one and get another gift for him - It wasn't worth shipping them back. Bottom line - I don't trust these for transportation and that was all I wanted them for.

                  I use this for used oils. I like the flat bottom, good capacity, and large opening in the neck. What I don't like so much is the lid. It has useless threads and it has no seal to keep the oil from leaking out during transport. All in all a 5 gallon bucket with a lid is probably better until the manufacturer puts a better quality lid on this thing.

                    Excellent unit. I have a different one which has a narrow bottom which can be tipped over. This one has wide flat bottom. if its accidentally kicked will just slide and not tip over. money well spent.
