Hi,

Not really a game changer this but I'm off on a road trip round wales next week and as my oil filler bellows were hanging in pieces and I didn't want to take a funnel with me (got enough stuff to take already!) and as I learnt from a previous trip to Venice, its very difficult to pour a freshly opened 1ltr bottle of oil without spilling some unless you have some kind of extension from the filler neck. Along with the silly price that these things are I thought I'd try and make them.
So using a piece of 32mm ID flexible reinforced pond tubing and the re-use of the plastic cups that were re-glued at each end of the new tube and bingo new filler bellows.

tube £6/metre (only 100mm required for bellows)
Actual cost of new bellows: £0.06 (plus a squirt of some glue I had already)

I did say it wasn't a game changer but its simple and better than the £50 to £100 I've seen them selling for.

I'll post a detailed list of the Wales road trip with photos and recommendations on paces to visit and stay when I'm back (including a photo of the expected oil top with new bellows at some stage)
