Aye  m8, it is. Make sure to fit a new crush washer when you replace it, if you're doing an oil & filter change.

I use a washing up bowl, catches it all. Easy enough to then pour it into an empty tub via tundish. Save it for painting the fence.

Recycling at its finest. Amazing how a fence soaks it up, an oil change does 3 panels one side.

Met a fine fellow from Alaska who says that 50% engine oil and 50% diesel fuel makes for a perfect wooden fence protector / preserver  :062:
