Dawn dish soap cleans the bilge out to where you could never tell. Squirt some in with a gallon of water, then go boating, drain at the end of the day. (Not legal in FL)

Has anyone used or know anything about the oil filter kit from Billet Marine that uses the replacable cartridge ?

I've never used it before but my friend said it was a little pricey. Looks like a good idea though.

With the new device and using an electric pump, we were able to change the oil and filter in 2 500efi's in 20 minutes without any mess to clean up.

That's what I thought. Our product we are probably going to sell for around $30 and it works with standard filters.
