I got an email from EZ Drain saying all products 20% off, ending Sept 3.
If you're contemplating an oil drain valve, I recommend EZ Drain over Fumoto.
Having used both I find the EZ Drain superior in operation and sealing.
I have no affiliation whatsoever with EZ Drain.

What makes it superior? I use fumoto in all our vehicles. It is pretty much fool proof. Never had a leak and it is very easy to change oil.

Edit: ok, I see one advantage: you can thread a fitting and hose in. That's potentially handy for some cars.

The flow through the EZ Drain is about double to that of the Fumoto.
The EZ takes about the same time to drain the sump as does removing the factory drain bolt.
The Fumoto takes much longer.
The Funmoto uses a fibre washer, which can and does leak over time.
The EZ uses a neoprene O-ring that will likely last the life of the engine.
