Oil drain pan and filter wrench

Hey Iím in the market for a new oil drain pan and filter wrench for a NAPA Gold 1042 what do you guys use? I am deep sumped so Iíll have about 10 1/2 L coming out. I like the look of the combined container and pan style but it looks like itís going to splash all over the place when used. what are your thoughts?

I use the same tub as Keith. Works great. It'll be fine under the car on ramps.

I use the Hopkins FloTool 42003MI 16-Quart Drain Container purchased at Walmart for under $15 at the time. I use a shipping box, perfect size in my case, to put the oil container in so I can drag it without wearing the plastic down and prevent any excess spills to the floor. It's been working great for the past few years. I do a few oil changes before dumping it at the local Autozone. I use rhino ramps and there's enough room.

Looks like it's on sale

I have the same one as Keith, works great. I bought it at princess auto after I had an accident with my 10 liter one, I think it was under $20.00 including tax.

I have this:

With a splash pad (cut to fit):
https://www.amazon.com/Lisle-38780-Square-No-Splatter-Pad/dp/B002AENGOG/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=oil+splash+pad&qid=1603029052&sr=8-3

And am a big believer. Super easy to move the drained oil around without any worry of spilling and pouring into the used oil bottles for recycling is a snap. The splash pad ensures there won't be any issue with splatter and losing the drain plug.

I'm seriously considering an oil extractor pump for my TDI Touareg (Tow Pig). Does anyone use an extractor on their 986? Seems like a clean easy way to do oil changes without pulling the plug.

Any recommendations for an extractor? "Mityvac 7201 Fluid Evacuator Plus" is what I'm thinking.

I have a recommendation: DO NOT USE AN EXTRACTOR, change the oil the way it was designed to be changed.

Over the years, we have had numerous Porsche's flat bedded to the shop because someone got the tube down into the sump, and then could not get it out. There are just too many edged surfaces that can catch and trap an extraction tube, making it impossible to pull out from the top. When that happens, the sump cover has to come off and the tube pulled out from the bottom. Bad idea.

Thanks great advice guys what do we think about this: https://www.amazon.ca/Lumax-LX-1632-Black-Drainmaster-Storage/dp/B0059HJSA2?

The 8 inch opening looks a little small to me. Too small for comfort?

Any thoughts on the best 1042 filter wrench?

8" doesn't give a lot of wiggle room.

This is the wrench I use:
