Home made old style oil can drain rack, back when oil came in metal cans


  1. Way back when I was an unscrupulous teenager, I worked at a Texaco gas station. We used to check peoples oil wipe down the stick and show them they needed a quart of oil and we would pretend to put that quart of oil from a stand that looked just like that. Of course, those cans were all empty and we would pocket the 65 cents or whatever it was back then, those were the bad old days! I wonder how many other guys were doing that?

    1. oh wow... sneaky trick! Did you dip the stick in less than the full distance to get it to indicate lower than the level really was? Well, if you're out to decieve, that is a damn clever way to do it!
