    From a dirty old port car washer, vents are your enemy, they gather and hold leaves seeds and mud, perfect for rust and plant growth. Then chassis rail ,and anywhere that has wheel arch covers, plastic surrounds any where that creates a pocket , for crap to settle.

    Bash plates are another great place to collect grass seeds straw.

    Nothing like a bit of underestimation. I had to 'drain' a 300x300x200 mm hole with a tin can and 10l bucket. Almost filled the second 44gal drum.

    The last time I did an oil change on my van I was very glad the mechanic had written on top of the air filter " 8.3L with filter". Firstly I wouldn't have had enough oil to do the change, and secondly I would have used a 4L container to try and catch just over 8L
    Seems like a shitload of oil but it is a 3L engine I guess

    The other one that's always good for a five litre or so is the bonnet/windscreen fascia drains, that area always fills up with leaves and crap and dead shit, and the drains out each side of the area drop down into the front guard voids. Dime a dozen one or the other will be blocked, normally for us the passenger side as it's down hill when parked on the road edge.

    New rangers are something like 12 or 13L if I recall correctly, I don't actually do it myself as I can't get the oil as cheap as Ford sells it and I get it on trade rates. The bloody Cummins B5.9's were good, 16L a side in the charter boat. Got sick of carting oil around, also got seriously sick of hand pumping bloody oil - got a drill puppy oil change pump and fitted a valve and a camlock to the oil drain. Pump out sump, take off old filter and fill new one and fit, and then hit reverse on the cordless drill powering the pump and pump oil in until dipstick full line reached. Then add 3mm and start engine, hey presto job done. Could do both engines in the time the factory mech could do one on the boat next door. He was quite pissed off...

    Greetings @gadjetman,
    1 litre almost exactly measures 100 x 100 x 100 or 1 cubic decimetre so your hole had a capacity of 18 litres. A 44 UK gallon drum holds a little over 200 litres. Clearly your hole was refilling itself from the bottom. I am surprised you ever caught up.
    Regards Grandpamac.

    Yes, it was the bilge pump hole in a bouble skinned river weed cutter. The foreman would not listen to my explanation of why I really needed a pump.
