This "issue" of leaving several ounces of old oil in the engine are just silly. I don't want to alarm anybody but there is at least 6 ounces of oil that remain in the engine even if you drain it with the drain plug. Anybody that has ever rebuilt an engine knows how much oil comes out of the oil passageways after the engine has been drained and removed from the car.

I also use a homemade suction device - they are a real timesaver when you have to deal with underbody noise panels to get to the drain plug.
