How are you all draining the Bob's Oil Separator ?

    Recently got my Bob's oil separator installed on the passenger side. Since where the bottom of the separator is located (and lack of a lot of space), what is the process you are taking to drain it?

    thanks,
    Crowley

    Cut a standard water bottle in half and squeeze it a bit as you put it under the drain nozzle.

    Same...there is more room if you approach the drain from the rear and slide it towards the front under the drain.

    The water bottle trick or I used a small tomato sauce can last couple times.

    I just remove the one bolt and drain it.

    I use an old protein powder scoop. It holds a few ounces (which is more than I've ever drained at one time) and has a convenient handle that's long enough to get it comfortably under the separator while leaving plenty of room to open/close the drain valve.
