I think so and I'm so glad it doesn't involve human excrement.

When my tank tabs on the ex failed a few years back I had a full (40 gal) tank of veg just hanging under the ex. I had to go home and hook up the sucker tank to the wifes van and bring it to my disabled ex. A few reducing fittings and garden hose allowed me to use the sucker tank to siphon the ex tank. From there I was able to ratchet strap the tank back into place to get her home without undoing all the lines. Without that sucker tank it would have made a bad situation worse.

Your MacGyver rating is a tad low.

Since I had to use the wifes minivan(honda) to bring the vac tank to my disabled ford, I figured I would not try to adjust my rating.

Finally got some pictures. 275 gallon tote turned septic tank. RV was parked on the pad, and the tote is behind it on the other side of the embankment

Here's the pad, you can see the top of the tote to the left of the propane tank.





The elbow at the end of the pipe sat in the top of the tote, and the waste just ran on in. Neighbors had a guy out to pump their septic just when this thing was done being used, they pumped it out.

Nothing very exciting about this: I use a used cubie to drain my oil when changing. I have a quick valve and a cribbing ramp that allows a cubie to fit well under the valve. I really grew tired of draining into an oil pan only to funnel into used jugs. Now I drain and drop off at my local tire shop for their waste oil furnace. Now if oil filters had a little screw in quick valve to drain them into the cubie I would be all set.

One other use of veg as a mouse trap. I throw a small bucket in my shed that has some veg in it to use as a mouse trap. a little ramp to the bucket and the critter curiousity takes care of the rest. If I want to increase my trapping production I just smear a little peanutbutter on the inside walls of the bucket.

Brilliant. I have also used this method for possums...

A sharp pointed instrument will create a nice drain hole. Like an old ice pick.
