Pocket multi-tools actually ARE useful

I changed the fuel filter on the ZX2 today, using nothing more than this, a Leatherman knockoff using the Columbia name. I did this on my lunch break. It took no longer than it would have with the proper tool(s): about 10 minutes, including hand-washing. All I would've needed was a flathead screwdriver, and my tool has one. Sort of. It did the job, anyway.

On a related note, I've discovered that my skin doesn't really like gasoline. It turns red and blotchy where I come in contact with the stuff. 

Pardon the shitty photo. I don't think my cell phone camera focuses at less than a few feet.


  1. You are the only person I know who does car maintenance on his lunch break.

    You'll be proud to know that I repped the three-pedal yesterday. My boss asked why I always drove a stick shift, and I said, "Because they're more fun than an automatic."

  2. Oh man, "repped the three-pedal"!
    You're the best girlfriend ever.
