Prevent funnel spills

by Tom Jones

For me, this was one of those why didn't I think of that solutions that I learned by watching forum member Terry Brewer change the oil in his coach.

Almost every time I use a funnel to pour fluid such as oil, coolant, or windshield wash, the funnel almost always decides to move at the wrong time. This is especially true if I'm pouring a fluid into a 1-gallon container. The result is that either I miss with my pouring or some of the contents of the funnel spill.

The simple fix is to wrap a piece of duct tape around the neck of the container and overlap it with the funnel. The result is that the funnel stays in place and you're not trying to hit a moving target.
