My old man is anal about his oil changes. He uses 10W30 dino oil and changes every 3k regardless. He will let it drain out for HOURS to make sure every drop is out before putting the plug in and refilling. Oil comes out just slightly darker than new after 3k.
He's been doing that since he bought it new and it's now over 150k. The couple times he has had it changed somewhere, he's pissed the next time cause it takes him a change to get his oil "clean" again.
Funny... He is missing about 1.5Q left in the high pressure oil system even
being that anal. Drain it, change the filter and fill it back up. You may miss
a cup of oil that didnt drain out..
