I have used a small funnel, but it takes a long time and I had to first move the fluid to a smaller container because the big one is too heavy to pour with one hand. Then the small funnel fills up and you have to wait for it to drain -- tedious.

As previously mentioned, there is a smaller container which is designed to screw onto the inlet in place of the cap. I havent ever had one of these, but I have read that others have adapted these to be able to refill them (apparently they are designed to be one-shot things), so if you buy one once, you can use it and refill it and use it again. Also, maybe you could cut the bottom off and use it as a funnel but you would probably need to attach it to a stand like I did in the above photo with the transmission oil funnel.
