Moeller fluid extractors are pumps that move hot or cold oil faster with less effort. Newly redesigned and available in 2 sizes (5 and 7 liter capacity), they use a dual action vacuum pump that creates vacuum with both the upstroke and downstroke.
Fluid extractors are perfect for clean and quick oil changes with minimal effort and fewer strokes. Great for removing bilge water in hard to reach areas, and countless other fluid removal applications. Manual operation hand pump means no more dragging an extension cord or air house out to your boat.
Pump has automatic shut off to prevent overflows and a manual pressure relief valve. Base has fold out feet for stability. New bucket design and easy pour spout. Comes with 3 extraction tubes and a tethered cap.

can i use it with diesel fuel?
The pump will remove virtually any fluid, BUT I wouldn't recommend using it to extract gas or diesel since I don't believe the pump is properly safety rated to handle these fluids. Static buildup could occur in the extraction process, possibly resulting in catastrophic ignition of the fluid. I'm not the expert, you may want to get additional feedback.
Can this extractor pump be used with synthetic oil?
it works well with any fluid
Yes,great pump use it on Volvo 5.0gxi heat product
Yes ... I have used the Moeller Fluid Extractor for a couple of years for various fluids ... Mobil 1 full-synthetic oil, Synthetic ATF (Amsoil and other brands). The box lists "made in Taiwan" ... and Taiwan, as opposed to most Chin* plastics are very high quality. This has been a very good device - strong suction - no problems so far!
Can this extractor be used for synthetic oil?
I think the extractor can be used to pump any oil if; you warm up the oil first ie run the engine before you pump it out and don't overfill the tank. I've used it on warm gear box oil which is a lot thicker than engine oil and it worked fine. 8 to 10 pumps of the vacuum pump was more than enough to remove the 2gals of oil in the gear box sump. Before using the extractor for the first time I put some silicone o-ring grease on the gaskets to help them seal. I found the extractor to work well.
Yes! will handle all automotive fluids EXCEPT: GASOLINE and/or any other "HIGHLY FLAMMABLE LIQUID"
May be a dumb question , but how do you clean the tubes after use ? Can you pump gas though it ?
Soak them in warm or hot water with dawn dish soap and blow out with air.Gas will destroy your seals and O-rings in your unit. It states in your instructions not to use with gasoline.
Thank you !
Since I only use it to extract oil I just cleaned it as well as possible and left it
Thank you !
I don't clean the tubes and really don't see any reason to. For safety sakes, if for no other, I would not recommend using gasoline in this pump for any reason.
I did not clean the tubes and I think gas would hurt the seals but not sure.
I got this yesterday. I want to extract the oil from my diesel engine. I put the tube down the dipstick well, and gave it around 15 pumps. I went back an hour later and found it had pumped maybe a pint of oil, and there was no more suction. I pumped it up again, and could hear what sounded like air excaping. After two or three minutes, it had lost vacuum and was not pumping anything. Any thoughts?
Thanks, Ron - good thoughts. This is a sailboat with perkins diesel engine. Unfortunately, I winterized the engine a week before the Moeller system arrived. so I can't start the gine to warm up the oil. It starts to come up quite well in spite of being cold, but then I can hear the sound of air infiltrating the vacuum. So I will follow your recommendations on ensuring that I have a good seal. Thanks!
Jack:A few random thoughts:1) Make sure the vehicle is on level ground2) Run the engine to warm the oil (easier to extract than cold oil)3) Remove the red cap on the top of the extraction pump. Look for a black rubber ring. Sometimes these are missing. If it's missing, request a replacement. It it's not missing, make sure it fits the inside of the cap and isn't not deformed. If it is, request a replacement.4) Make sure the small black extraxction tube splicer fits tight5) The dipstick tubes on some engines have internal baffles or sharp bends that make it difficult to insert the extraction tube. If the extraction tube doesn't reach the bottom of the crankcase, only a small amount of oil can be removed and twill quickly lose vacuum. Try inserting a coathanger wire down the dipstick tube until it bottoms out. Then compare how far it went down into the dipstick tube with that of the extraction tube. If the tube didn't go down as far, try rounding off the end of the tube. The squared of end can cause the tube to hang up.6) If the extraction tube is a snug fit into the dipstick tube, unscrew the oil filter a very small amount. This will allow air to flow into the crankcase above the oil level in the crankcase.7) Some engines by design won't allow extracting oil from the dipstick tube.8) Don't turn the extractor unit completely upside down when you're finished. Some oils and additives will attact the seal around the pump shaft and won't allow the unit to hold a vacuum.
Jack,I have not had a chance to use my extractor yet but you obviously have a vacuum leak at one of the seals in the container assembly or your connectors in the suction lines. Try to listen closely and see if you can determine where the sound of escaping air is coming from and check that seal or connector.John
We have about 50 units of commercial landscaping equipment and this unit takes a lot of the drama out of oil changes. Key is to have the oil warm especially if using the smaller diameter draw tube. Only takes a few minutes to pull 2 qts 6oz of oil using the smallest tube. Draw tubes could be a little more flexible and a little longer. Borrowed a friends Topsider before I bought the Moeller. Absolutely no comparison!

Not so hot
It worked great pumping some water from a catch pan, but after 2 hours of pumping I got only 3 quarts of oil out of my I/O boat engine.
I pulled 7 qts. of COLD oil out of the dipstick hole of my Honda 150 four stroke. Works just like you would hope. No muss.No fuss. This product is really well made and the quality shows through when you use it. I debated on the motorized competitors' model, but I read the positive reviews of the Moeller and went with it. Now I'm singing its praises too.

This Product Works!
I purchased this item to perform an oil chonge on a Honda 150 4stroke outboard. I did the job with the oil cold and it worked better than expected. This is a very well made tool, you can tell by the way it feels when you pump it. I think that the price is very fair for what you get. The final step of this procedure is to empty the oil into a larger container for future recycling and the design of this tool makes that simple and neat. It's one of the best tools for a specific job that I have ever bought.

The screw on fitting didn't fit my Mercruiser,engine but use the hose with a clamp worked well. Unit primed and pumped to the bottom with little effort and no mess. First time using.Hope it last for years to come.
Used once so far. Worked great for me.
Have used this once so far to remove the overfill from my Mercruiser. The threaded fitting worked perfectly on my dipstick tube. Because the tubes are pretty stiff (which is why the vacuum works so well) a little bit of care should be exercised when moving/positioning the unit. Based on my experience, I expect it will work quiet well to fully drain all the oil from my boat engine. With a little care, the job can be done with no oil spills or drips.
engine oil changes
extract oil from marine engines
We have two cars which require my jack to lift it high enough to get under and the removal of the diaper just to change the oil. Well I did a lot of research on all products on the Internet. I finally decided to buy the Moeller. This worked GREAT! Once I pumped it up and down about 3 times it was flowing very nice. It took about 10 minutes to empty my oil pan. I love this product and have told my friends. It's so easy to use, no mess and saves a ton of time!
