Tip for oil change addicts
I change my oil every 2,500 to 3,000 miles, which gets to feel like every other minute sometimes. For those of you who do your own oil changes, I use a vacuum oil pump: Basically, you let the engine cool a bit and insert a nylon tube into the dip stick port. You then create a vacuum in a special 2 gallon oil canister fitted with a pump, to draw the oil from the engine into the canister. This device is better known to RV and boater fans.
Not certain where you'll find the best price, but so to show the unit I'm talking about, check out this link:
