Easy Funnel Made From PVC Pipe
Dennis Howell was tired of spilling oil and needing two hands to put oil into his tractors and trucks. He tried different funnels but found none of them were large enough, worked with one hand, or were durable. “None of the funnels I used worked like I thought they should, or lasted long enough to be worth it.”
He came up with his own design using pvc pipe. “It stays still, straight and is the last funnel you’ll ever use on your truck or tractor,” he says.
Howell’s funnel starts with 4-in. pvc and reduces down to 1 or 3/4-in., depending on the needs of your tractor or truck. He uses a 22-1/2 degree bend to keep the funnel upright when filling.
The pieces are glued together. Costs are about $10 to $15 per funnel, unless you have pvc laying around to use, says Howell. “I have made about a dozen of these for friends and neighbors. They’re easy to make and don’t cost a lot. You can angle them however you need to fit a particular piece of equipment.”
