Oil funnels drain neatly

It’s hard to keep track of funnels and keep them clean – they often make a mess on the floor. So we made a funnel drain out of leftover PVC pipe and a few fittings. Now, they stand on end right by our oil station. We added a drain stopcock, and the last section of pipe is turned down for draining the extra oil regularly. The drain tubes may be tilted slightly to accommodate both large and small funnels.
