    Does anyone know of a pay by the hour bay where I can change my own oil? Does something like this exist? Even better, anyone have a shop I can rent for an hour or so every 5K?

    You can change your oil just about anywhere - find some flat ground and you are set. I don't think a bay is neccessary. All you would need is a wrench to take the drain plug out, an oil pan when draining the oil and maybe a strap to loosen the oil filter.

    I know it's easy, but I would love to get it up on a hoist or over a bay. Makes collecting and caring for used oil much less of a pain in the ass.
