Emergency funnel alternative????

Recommended Posts

Anyone discovered a household item that can be used instead. I am not about to pay £7 for a plastic pipe. I went through some of my sockets to see if any of them would fit just to size it and I found that the 17mm one does. Vernier reading of 24mm. Looks like the handle on the garden rake is this size so the next time I get the car out of the garage I'll try it for size and cut a bit off if it works.:smile:

Sent the wife to check the caravan water carrier.:wink:

 

Edit: water spout right size to start with but tapered.

Found this though:- will see if they will let me try one £3.19. http://www.eurocarparts.com/ecp/p/car-accessories/car-maintenance-accessories/car-cans-and-funnels/fuel-cans-accessories/?549779981&&cc5_147

The spout on a 4 gallon army Jerry Can Is what I use. Ideal! 

I thought there was a extra tab of plastic on the official ford funnel which was required to open the neck? I guess not!

It seemed strange to me that when you look at the ones for sale on eBay they have a range of years that they work on. Yet aren't all the diesel pump nozzles the same when you fill up no matter what you've got?????????:biggrin:

Just to check, you've looked in the spare wheel well in and around the foam/spare wheel (if you have one) for it? I found mine hiding underneath the foam sort of wedged in.

Can't remember the last time I had to fill a car up from a can just make sure you don't run out of fuel and your principles won't take a hit

I have just got this car and it has been doing 2miles a day for the last 4 years so its all choked up. I want to put a bottle of Redex in £10 worth of diesel,warm it up and drive it around at 4k revs to clean it out.:wink: But I can't get the Redex into it without a funnel. I could go the fuel filter route but I don't want that much carbon dumping into an already choked exhaust. :ohmy:      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D8RfoL7aZJo&t=75s

take it for a good blast down motorway and fill up with shell/bp premium as it has the additives in it all ready.

i take it the old owner of the car was doing 2 miles a day in it for 4yrs and not you if you have only just got the car

That's not a principle it's just you being tight.

I have just had £7 in my hand whilst I looked in our recycle bin and I can't see one bit of plastic in there that is worth £7.:biggrin:

keep that £7 in your hand ready to invest in a proper funnel and then it`s job done

Come the Zombie Apocalypse I don't want to be siphoning fuel out of all the dead cars and trying to put it in mine with the emergency She-wee. I'm with John and an army jerrycan as weapon of choice. :wink: As soon as I've got my car on the road I'll report back when I have tried one.

I can confirm that the £3.19 Jerry can spout from Eurocarparts does fit the DIESEL.

Not available in store but with free delivery it took 3 days,came with DHL signed for. How they make any money from that I have no idea.

It is steel in its construction so I would not look for similar regards a PETROL as steel on steel can=SPARK and BANG but it will not fit anyway.
