It looks like the valve will fit 3/8" ID tubing, which would allow for oil changes without even removing the plastic panel. I'll pick some up next time I'm in Walmart.
Does the panel cover the valve? It looks like a stick could get caught on it and open it wide open while you're driving. If you hook up the tubing to it, and it's fully covered by the panel, how do you turn the valve?

Honestly, I have never looked under my car except to see it's missing all of the front panels. I have one of those valves installed already for all I know, lol! I guess at some point I'll need to change the oil and I'll find out

BTW, are you changing the oil out there where you found the fossils? What's all that gravel?
