".......either method achieves the same "thorough" result"

The drain is usually at the very bottom of the oil pan... designed to be at the very bottom in order to do a good job of draining all the oil out of the engine...
On an old Mercedes the straight line down the oil dip stick hole may or may not be right above that drain hole... will have to look at mine to know one way or the other...

The other question is whether the 240 and the 300 share that same good or bad orientation... whichever exists...
