$17+ for Mobil 1? Never seen it that cheap at Walmarts in the Charlotte area. More like $27.

If your having issues with oil draining onto axles or frame rails you could try Saran Wrap or aluminum foil. Either wrapping the component or fabricating a diverted type pan to keep it directed where you want it. The box the filter comes in can be lined then after loosening the filter slide it back over the filter and finish loosening it and remove catching the excess in the box.

OldCoot I use the Ford Motorcraft Synthetic Blend not Mobil 1. I change it more frequently because it's so easy & cheap to do. Oil on the front axle. I use the leveling jacks raised a little higher in the front. Sometimes it misses the axle other times I use a piece of scrap cardboard tented on the axle.

I just got a piece of clear hose about 18" long and stuck a funnel in one end, then run the hose behind the hood and fill it from the funnel up by the windshield.

I also use the 1 quart bottles and as the have others mentioned the Fumoto valve really make oil changes an easy job. I do find it hard to get the filter off without spilling a little oil. I always watch the Harbour Freight ads for their coupon for the free small blue tarp which makes a good disposable drop cloth for the job.

Hey Tim, that was designed to keep the front axle well lubricated. Have you ever seen one rust?

When' I had a boat there was no way to access the drain plug, many boats have that issue.

The solution was a special vacuum pump that allowed you to suck the oil out the drain hose, no fuss no musss.. Any reason not to use on our V10s?

I installed a Fumoto Valve on my 2012 Georgetown and have changed oil at least 5 times and it is effortless to drain.
My DW buys 1 gallon jugs of tea and I away keep two for my oil change.
I have a clear hose I use from the valve to the jug which is placed on the passenger side next to the front tire so I can watch and see when I need to change jugs. It is a bit slow but I'm not in a hurry.

Here is the valve I bought for my F53 engine.
F106N | FumotoŽ Engine Oil Drain Valves

I usually by a 5 qt container and (2) 1 quart bottle to fill mine.
The attachment that others talked about is good and may make less of a mess. I'm almost considering looking under the dog house to see if I can fill from there but I don't think the valve cover has a fill cap like in cars.
