Just for fun, will the DIY oil changers on this website give an estimate on how many oil changes/filter changes you have done over the years to your own families vehicles, and when did you start. Also, give any little tricks you have used over the years. I'll start: I started changing oil (and filter of course every time) around 1975, and have had the honor of about 100-110 oil changes. Tricks? I try to change when the oil is hot. Take out the keys and hang them on the wall somewhere, out of the ignition. Whenever I can, I try to punch a hole in the lowest portion of the filter to let it drain a while, before removing it. When refilling, I have poured as much fresh oil into the new filter as I can without the risk of spilling. I have punched a hole in the bottom of the oil bottle, so the oil flows faster/easier, without alot of "gurgling" of the oil in the bottle. I feel that allows the oil molecules to go in correctly without being jostled around too much. (Actually thats humor and I dont really mean that, but for some odd reason I have punched holes in the jugs.) Of course over the years, between the drain and refill portions of this job, I have enjoyed a beverage or two. Started out with tea or soda then evolved into an adult beverage(s) (or two or seven), and in the last couple of years has evolved back to tea and soda!! I guess things go around in a circle. Again, this is just for fun and dont want to inflame anyone.
