    2k miles to my next synthetic oil change, sounds like a good time to order this gizmo and the screw in fitting to add a hose. Will send a pic.

    I bought the EZ-104 on advice but I think the thread is too large! The gasket I have for the filler plug is much smaller. I will do the oil change next week and report. Will have to return the 104 I think.

    I installed the Fumoto FS103S that has M12-1.25 threads, according to their website. On Amazon, the EZ-104 seems to have M18-1.5 threads, you may need to return it.

    Hey guys, I got to give a shout-out here to the Oil Drain Valve guys at oildrainvalve.net in Washington. I found a link in a forum to their products and ordered what I thought was the one for my 2012 FJ. It was too large, I checked it against my gaskets for the drain plug. After I emailed them back they were nice enough to send me the correct one , EZ-103, and a return postage paid envelope for me to return the wrong one. Nice. This ball valve is really high quality stainless steel and the handle has a detent it sets in so it cannot be inadvertently opened. I also ordered the $4 screw-in hose end piece that hooks up to a short length of clear 3/8 dia. hose. Pics here from todays oil change and valve install. Plenty of room under the sheet metal cover.
    Thanks Michael and Estancio, you are correct.
