I can definitely see the advantage to doing a Oil Change from the Top via Dipstick Tube.
Supposing you are in the middle of Winter, colder than Venus! I can see where you can do a
quick Oil Change, Oil Filter and go on your merry way.
Or even someone who wants to do an Oil Change without all the hassle of getting underneath
the car. People who live in Apartments, Condominiums or even at work!
As for me, I will continue to do as I see fit. I drain the Oil below, do a full visual Inspection, cleaning
the underside with some Blue Towels and Degreaser. You see, that's my thing!
