   This sounds like a really useful pump to aboard.  I will look into ordering one.  James

Hi Ian,

I use a Pela Pump.  I chose the 6 liter size.  

Biggest benefit is that it sucks all the oil out of genset and engine as I leave it in the sump overnight.  Will suck out the oil from your Lofrans too. Works good to remove foam from the C drive oil tank when the seals are no longer  

Also sucks water out of inaccessible places as the tubes are about 4 MM and can snake into some quite small spots.

Alan,  Thanks. Trying to extract the old oil with a pump is an interesting game !
