    I hate cleaning funnels. Any oil attracts dirt for the next change. Call me wastful but I always liked gas stations that provided paper funnels for your use. Now I discover that I can buy them myself. I thought I'd share I'm soo happy.

    Now's the time for someone to chime in with "I have the same thing, but not from that Griot guy, and it only cost me $2". :):

    Not really...the oil level seems to be posessed...sometimes I'll check it and there will be no oil. So I make a note to fill it, then forget, then check again and there is oil there.

    Depending on how I ride also has an effect...

    I bet you can get those cone drink cups for cheaper. just tear the tip off.

    Or hell just grab a section of newspaper or a magazine roll it into a cone and use that. Done that on the road.

    I've seen gas stations with these funnels. I'd guess they can be had cheaper somewhere else, or for free if I knew where I've seen them! :):

    The drink cup idea is a good one!
