Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

Thank you to everyone who has replied! This has been very helpful. For those of you using he "little pal jabsco pumps", how long doe it take to pump per quart? I feel some of the reviews are a little exaggerated. Some say hours???? I have a 6 qts to pump.

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

I have both. The small one is portable and handy, I keep it aboard, and I use it for lots of fluids. It's kind of a pain to deal with a separate container, and yes it is slow, you have to sit and pump it. The big one, which I've dedicated to oil, lives on the hard because of its size. But…it's much easier to use, being self-contained. The big one, you can pull a vacuum on the tank and it'll kind of finish the job by itself.

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

I like the unit you bought. Far less messy than the little jabsco type pump only. Let's face it... you have to store the oil until you get rid of it somewhere anyway. make a bracket in the lazzarette to hold it upright.

Not more than a minute or two of actual pumping. Setup and cleanup take longer. All in all can do it in 30-45 minutes, start to finish.

OK. More seriously. I have a vacume oil extraction pump I used for changing oil in my Beneteau. It worked just fine. Then, after swapping a brand new Beneteau for a third of a century old Amel I found there is an easier way, a simple oil extraction hand pump fixed on an engine. My point is that it should be a standard feture on any boat engine.

I have one of those too and they work well. I also have a little jabsco pump though, because I really didn't like the thought of relying on a working cordless drill for oil changes.

Unless you have an enormous engine, the jabsco should only take a couple minutes. It can be tricky making sure the intake hose is held at the very bottom of the sump though I suppose, or if you're trying to pump out cold oil.

I'm considering mounting mine to the engine room wall to make it just that much easier to use.

2nd the drill pump.Takes about 3 minutes to drain the crankcase. By far the cleanest oil change system I have used. A tip I figured out today using the old oil gallon container I always seemed to tip them over had a metal mineral sprits gallon can is much more stable.FWIW

Re: Oil Extraction Pumps for Cruising

Really should fully warm your engine fully before changing oil if possible. Reason is of course the dirt / sludge etc will separate out and settle to the bottom of the oil pan, and you'll not be able to pump it all out.
