I've used this funnel for the past 7 years to winterize the engine. It makes it more convenient and avoids spills. I set it up, start the engine, add 2 gallons of antifreeze, shut the engine down. Work like a charm. Follow the instructions that come with it.

I use the Sea Flush Snorkel also and have found it to be easy to use and very convenient. I also use a Shop Vac in the blow mode before the antifreeze to blow water out of the seacock before I shut it, that works great also.
