Drivers blown away over clever hack to change your car's oil without a funnel | The Sun

DRIVERS have been left blown away over a clever hack to change your car's oil without a funnel.

In a video shared to TikTok, the "life hack you didn't know you needed" is said to make the task a lot easier and cause less mess.



The account called betec_caraccesories explained to their nearly nine thousand followers how to do it successfully, describing it as "magic".

In the video it demonstrated how not having a funnel shouldn't stop you from topping up the oil.

You essentially use the oil dipstick and lift it out – but not all of the way.

Then you simply pour the oil from the can down the dipstick.

The idea is that it clings to each side of the dipstick and creates a straight flow into where the oil needs to go instead of all over the engine.

The man behind the account – Richard – explains in the video: "If you've found yourself in this situation without a funnel, oil gets everywhere.

"So grab your engine oil dipstick. You're [then] gonna put it where the oil goes and just pour directly down the dipstick.

"Like magic. I can't explain how but it just goes directly down the dipstick, clings to it on all sides and doesn't make a mess."
