You could have cut the bottom off a 2 liter bottle of soda and then cut the bottle in half 3/4 of the way to the spout and cut the top half off and made your funnel.
I don't know. Maybe I don't care anymore but I just put my oil pan under it let it drain into it And spray some brake cleaner on whatever got oil on it put the new filter on, spray a little more brake fluid on it and be done with it. I don't care if it has some oil residue on it.

I use a $6 oil pan from HF. Had to buy it when I got the Street 750. Holds about 3Qts. Low enough to clear the Primary for draining. Bought one of those Filter Drain Funnels off Amazon. Works pretty good. Just the hose keeps bending in the wrong direction. Use should clear that up. Also use the HD Filter tool. Interestingly, It fits the Bosch D3330 oil filter perfectly.
