It is very simple to transport and remove the oil. You will want to remove the stopper plug where the cantilever is and there is a pour spout built in to discard your used oil manually.

It is very easy to transport and dump the old oil out. I usually use a little mineral spirits to clean the container so it is ready for any other liquids.
The cap just pops out and it has a small spout area that makes it easy to pour.

Like pouring from a gas can, a small collection tank may require a funnel. We sometimes take the used oil and pour back into quart size containers then transport to our bulk used oil tank.

You don't need to pour the oil out , just engage the transfer switch to pump out position the the fluid will come out the hose when you pump it .

The top of the tank has a rubber expansion plug. You flip up the lever, pull the plug and pour into whatever you are dumping to. The lip of the hole is shaped like a water pitcher, so it goes where you want. Worked well for me.

Very easy to transport with no mess at all. It has a removable expandable rubber plug that looks to be pretty leak free and it is easy to remove. I would just ensure that the mityvac is upright during transport. It pours well to empty. Just have a couple of paper towels with you to wipe the plug off after you remove it as it is lanyard'd to the mityvac. Very neat design and you shouldn't have any issues.

You can reverse the pump, so you can just put the sucker tube into whatever vessel you want to dispense the oil into and pump. It's not mess *free*, but it's very tidy if you're careful. Just note that there will be some oil left in the hose which will run out if you let it.

answer 2
Yes. The pump works on *air*, providing vacuum/pressure to the main tank. The fluid being dispensed/extracted never touches the pump itself.

Synthetic and conventional oils aren't that different outside an engine, so anything that could handle one can handle the other.
