Oil funnel question

I swear I searched the hell out of this, sorry if itís already been beaten to death.

Looking for a nice no hands needed oil funnel that clicks into place.

Iím sure ECS has some funnel made of anodized alu that costs $99 but I donít want to spend a ton on something I should be able to get for $10.

Bought this one, doesnít fit.

PK 710 oil filler funnel, anti spiller,Volkswagen OIL tool, Audi OIL tool, BMW oil tool, Mercedes Benz OIL tool https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006T8L2KY..._w5Ojl7wR6Ltt8

Hey now! That cost you 69 cents at Wal Mart!

I don't understand why the need for a funnel to screw on and lock in place. What am I missing?

LOL! Me, too! That said, the virtue of DAP's funnel is it "locks" (sic) in place, which comes in handy when you're trying to pour motor oil from a five-quart jug.

In any other car Iíve ever had, the oil goes into a hole and any old funnel you can bojangle together is sufficient.

In this car, itís over engineered and no funnel will actually enter the hole and then not fall right out as soon as you let go of it.

And exactly right, itís damn near impossible to pour from a fresh 5 quart container into a funnel youíre holding with the other hand. Iím sure someone will say they do it all the time but I prefer to buy the right tool for the job and then lose it someplace in the garage before I need it again.

I've not looked at mine yet, but the moment you said "over engineered" I got right on board. I expect such over-engineering in a VW.

Can't hold the jug with one hand? I use the funnel below, it fits in the hole and doesn't fall out. I hold the jug with one hand and funnel with the other.

If I had that big funnel Iíd probably have stuck with it. Does seem cool to have one that just stays right in place though too.

If you pour the quart of oil sideways where it would be laying flat it pours out perfectly and doesn't guzzle out and is easy to get in the oil fill cap we thought a funnel. I never spill any oil and it's quick and easy.

Cheap alternative is to go local junkyard, find a VW, pull the oil cap, drill a hole and screw in top of your favorite soda bottle. I bet it'll be dirt cheap.

Supposedly the oil cap changed with the new platform. Previous gen caps donít work.

I got a new cap at work for about $10. Another $1 for the 2 liter Dr. Pepper bottle from Wally. Cheap. Works on the wife's GLI too. Disposable paper funnels for everything else.
