Anyone using a Fumoto valve?

Anybody? On my 1.4L Cruze, the drain plug was on the bottom so I might be worried about having anything sticking further down. On my work beater Cavalier, the drain plug sticks out the side of the oil sump so I decided to put one on it. The valve just showed up today. It's made of forged brass and seems very substantial. The Cavalier, like the Cruze, uses a cartridge style oil filter accessible from the top of the engine. Seems like with this valve, DIY oil changes will be very clean. Does anyone have one on their Cruze, and what engine do you have?/where is your drain plug located?

-By the way, the nipple on the end is for attaching a hose. It came with 3 hose end adapters that clip on quite snugly. This is to allow you to drain oil directly into a container for recycling. Bloody brilliant.

Great idea for Honda owners. Constantly pulling out threads on Honda aluminum oil pans.
Double for first generation Insight owners with magnesium pans.
