[Vwdiesel] Sucking Oil

Anyone care to share their tricks of getting the last drops (well, oz, really)
out of the oil sump, when using a oil sucker.  Most of the time, wiggling the
sipping tube around, I can get the last bit, however, today I didn't.  
The method needs perfecting.  

I might try a short segment of copper tubing, on the end of the sipper,
so that I can hear it hit the bottom.  A bad day could occur if the 
copper segment were to come off while working the oil sump, though.

Surely someone in this group worked his way to his first car in an 
quickie oil change outfit!

I want to learn...
