What is an engine oil drain valve?

An engine oil drain valve is designed to replace the engine oil sump plug on motor vehicles to simplify vehicle maintenance. The Fumoto engine oil drain valve is the patented design of Fumoto Engineering of Japan.

How is the drain valve manufactured and tested?

The Fumoto engine oil drain valve is made of corrosion-resistant forged brass and stainless steel. The ball valve design provides a controllable, steady flow for efficient drainage and a perfect seal when closed. To gain the approval of motor manufacturers they were subjected to temperatures as low as -40C. They endured 336 hours of salt spray and thousands of opening and closing operations and still worked perfectly. The ball valve design is the same as used in pressurized gas applications. Every valve is constructed to exacting specifications and each valve is tested for air tightness before it leaves the factory. The Fumoto engine oil drain valve has also been tested and granted 'Genuine Part' status by six major motor vehicle manufacturers in Japan. These approvals were not granted easily and gaining them was a testimony to the quality and durability of the product.

Is this an established product with a tried and tested sales history?

Yes. Over 7 million engine oil drain valves have been sold worldwide in the past twenty years so the product has an established pedigree. Sizes are available to fit most cars, motorbikes, vans, trucks, tractors and buses.

Does the product come with a guarantee?

Yes. We offer a limited lifetime replacement guarantee to the original purchaser on our drain valves against faulty workmanship or materials. Proof of purchase may be required; we will replace the defective item free of charge (see website for details).

Why have I never heard about this product before?

Although the product has enjoyed great sales worldwide, it has never been directly marketed or sold to the after-sales automotive and truck markets in the UK or across Europe before now.
