Interesting thread. I used to be concerned about the dirty oil left after an oil change, but thought that there is nothing I could do about it. I do everything that I am able to do in order to get the most oil out. I drain the oil when the engine is hot, and usually for a couple of hours (sometimes overnight). I remove the filter cap bolts, lift and turn the cap slightly to allow air to get in. Sometimes I do drain the cooler, but not always. I also don't like to go over 5,000 miles between oil changes (5,000 mile increments make it easy to remember).
