The piss-jug saves me from having to get up and bike to the bathroom in the cold of the night or during the heat of day, and all the extra overhead that comes with it: dressing, putting on my boots, unlocking the bike, riding to the bathroom, locking the bike, waiting for a toilet to open up, unlocking the bike again, riding back to camp, taking off my boots, undressing, and trying to fall back asleep again. I even have the benefit of being able to piss while standing without a funnel!
I piss in that jug and thinking "heh heh heh, man did I just save myself a trip. Now I can go back to sleep and deal with this when I get up."
There was even one time that I felt I wouldn't even make it to the bathroom because I had to piss so badly. That was when the piss jug REALLY hit home, and I was glad I chose/found a large bottle.
This is exactly why I have a detergent bottle and a funnel. It saves me 45-50 minutes per day
over the course of the Burn that I could've spent plodding to and from the portos. That time adds up! And it gives me probably an extra hour of sleep per night, 'cause once I wake up, I can't get back to sleep.

Mine is a squishy go-girl and I peed all over myself. I have a spare new in package if anyone wants it. Going to try the pstyle next. Does the size of the bush matter?
Ugh, I hate the Go Girl. The squishiness makes it very difficult to get a tight seal. (No wonder it was so cheap.) Any rigid model is probably going to work way better. I've never tried the P-style. I like the Freshette, but it's wayyy overpriced. Believe it or not, I bought an elliptically shaped automotive funnel for $3 as an experiment, because it's similar in shape. One of the ePlaya ladies recommended it, but I haven't tried it yet.
If it works, the automotive funnel is going to be the tent funnel, and the Freshette will be the mobile funnel, because it breaks down into two parts.
