    Okay, doing my 2nd oil change, first one since putting in the futomaki or whatever you call it quick drain valve. She's been draining for 30 minutes, I just pulled the milk jug away and she's still dripping black gold, just a drop a second, but I like to get it all.

    What's your drain time? Already had one beer waiting, is it a two beer wait?

    Just wait til it's dripping then close it back up and finish the OC. You're dumping in 5.x quarts of fresh oil. It's going to suspend and neutralize anything harmful that may be left in the .x quart that doesn't drain out to the degree it doesn't matter.

    No reason to let an OC take an hour.

    Thanks guys! I like the idea of pouring a little in. Something to do with that odd 1/2 quart. Still a stupid plan of 5.5 quarts. I mean come one, 5 or 6.

    My 4-cylinder DD is listed for 3.9qts. PITA.

    I typically end up using odd amount leftovers to fill filters at the next OC or top off the 4banger between changes (at 177,000mi, it eats about a half-qt of oil every 5k miles...god I love Toyota...)

    yeah that 5.5 thing is stupid but look on the bright side, if you save all your half used bottles, after 11 oil changes you will have enough oil for one more change!

    do you have a link to where i could find more info? Sounds like it would eliminate the step of funneling from oil pan to jugs.

    Yeah, I was a tad disappointed. Went from 1K to 4K on this oil change and was down 1/2 quart. Not enough to stress, but still a bit more. Only hoping that maybe the dealer shorted me a 1/2 quart when they fixed the leaking pan gasket.

    I let her drip until she recognizes who's the boss... then we get down to bidness ; )
