A great tool in theory - it has reasonable capacity and comes with funnel and plastic bottle, but the fit between the plastic seal and the body of the syringe is so poor it won't suck fluid past about 10% of its capacity.
Tried "priming" the plunger with fresh oil and reversing the seals but eventually it took the best part of a roll of PTFE tape wound around the piston to create enough suction to half fill the syringe.
I've bought many tools from Screwfix and this is the first I've been really disappointed with. I'll be returning it and trying the Hilka Pro-Craft one instead.

I bought this to reduce the amount of oil in an automatic gearbox that had been over-filled.
I was able to insert the plastic tube into the gearbox dipstick tube.
I found that by pulling the plunger upwards slowly and carefully I kept the tube immersed below the level of the gearbox oil and was able to draw more oil out at once.
I extracted about 400ml this way.
I wouldn't use for a full oil change on a car.

This kit doe the job well. The only thing to improve it would have been to come with a litre of mower oil.

This is exactly what is needed for removing the old oil from many garden products -saves a lot of mess. Had one for years till it eventually gave up and needed a replacement, so got this from Screwfix. Works simply - just as described. Simple to use a larger bottle if needed with a lawnmower or such. Good value!
