Went on a long ride on my Kodiak today, and thought my wife was not going to be home so I pulled into her garage spot to change oil. Oil was nice and hot, and I was going to go down to get my normal drain pan, but there in the trash was one of those nice clear organic spinach containers that my wife buys, these are light duty plastic but was perfect for draining oil into. I got the plug out got the clear plastic container under there, it was perfect! 15 seconds later it was collapsing on the sidewalls of the container, they got hot and the sides just lost all of their strength and sides just sank to the floor and let all the oil out, the container that was 4 inches high when I started draining oil into it, were now about 1/2 inch high. What a mess, and a surprise. So just wanted to let you all know, be careful!

I could write a book on all the screwups that I have been a party to over the years

Haha. Such a bad situation. But man that's funny!

Food for thought.

Ive had where i under estimated the size of the drain pan, and have it overflow.
