I change my oil every 8k, I'm running Mobil1 0W-30, my job requires a lot of traveling so I am basically changing my oil every 4-5 weeks. My new apartment complex will kick me out if they see me crawling under my car to change my oil. I tried using a hand pump that goes down the dipstick tube, but I wasn't confident that all of the old oil was removed so I pulled the plug and found an extra quart waiting.

I don't have access to a garage, I don't want to pay for a quick lube place to do something I can do at a quarter of the price. I hear bad things about Fram's quick drain fittings. Does anyone have/use a pump that actually works through the dipstick, I was considering buying a 12V pump that has a 7 liter reservoir. Any ideas or should I continue doing 1 am oil changes?

Ive seen people drive up on the curbs and slide under the car in the auto parts store parking lot. Its kinda funny but it works. Just go behind a store where a loading dock is and if anyone asks just say youre having problems and they should leave you alone lol

Auto parts store back lot, When done with the used oil, pour it into the new container and just hand it back to the store to recycle.

1 question why would they kick you out for working on your car?
one would think as long as it is not up on blocks for the time your living
there. It would not be a problem.

otherwise, park it on a curb, drain it in to the rain gutter, and your good to go.
lol kidding on that, or am I?
