I do some oil in the filter if the filter sticks straight up and down but otherwise don't if it's sideways or upside down.

I do put oil on the seal when installing.

It is the F108 series.

For Subaru 2017 Outback 2.5L H4

I chose the short nipple version and bought a hose kit. The socket snaps onto the nipple and I put the other end of the hose into an empty motor oil jug. When I'm done draining the used oil, it's ready to go to the recycle bin. No wasted motion or added opportunity for spill by transferring it from a drain pan to a jug.

NJAuditor Well I changed my oil again last week and installed the Fumoto valve. This time I was prepared for the deluge of oil, so I made much less of a mess. The Fumoto valve went on easily, and it is tucked up into the plastic undercarriage of the car, so I am not concerned with it being damaged from any road debris. As an added precaution I bought and installed the $3.00 Lever Clip to prevent any unexpected valve openings as well as the vinyl hose to attach to the valve nipple. The next oil change should be a snap!

Usmc1968 Which Fumoto would you all use for the 2017 2.5? There are several: F108SX, F108S, F108 and F108N

It's actually not a deviation per se because the Fumoto has been given OEM status by many manufacturers around the world. I just got done with a week long trip through the back roads of UT with dirt, gravel and ruts and my Fumoto worked without fail.
