Remaining Oil Volume

Not meaning to be nitpicking, but in frame 1 you refer to the remainig 7 oz. of oil constituting half a quart , or 5.2% or the recommended 8 liter fill. Actually, at 32 oz. per quart it's only about half that; less than 1/4 of a quart or 2.6% of the refill amount. It still seems that sucking is better than draining. Does anyone know the amount left behind in an '86 300E with the 3.0 liter straight 6? How does the Topsider compare with the MityVac Fluid Evacuator ( http://www.thetoolwarehouse.net/shop/MIT-7201.html ) - $53

or an electric pump

Cheap - ( http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=6970&langId=-1&catalogId=4006970&PHOTOS=on&TEST=Y&productId=16818&categoryId=1546 ) - About $50 - 5.7 gpm

Expensive - http://www.westmarine.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10001&storeId=10001&memberId=-2000&partNumber=356149&prrfnbr=9418&outlet=&prmenbr=201? - About $100 - 3.75 gpm
