Maybe it's just my high profile tires (I sure don't have a
low-profile belly), but I don't need to jack up this car for doing
oil changes. Anyway, the Fumoto gadget would be nice--eliminating the
periodic need to apply 100 ft-lbs  to loosen a drain plug that I
tightened to nowhere near that torque. I'll be a customer when they
figure out a way to eliminate the mess of filter removal--that's the
major PITA, IMO. A plastic bag can help, but then you end up with a
messy plastic bag full of oil... (sigh).

Or, there's always the alternative of doing oil changes at 10-yr intervals. :-)
