Re: Changing Oil - an easier way?

What vacuum pump are you using, the one by Moeller is pretty awesome. Often, due to the angle of the engine and where the drain plug is located you still wouldn't get all the used oil out. Your engine should sit on a pan, I suppose you could drain it into that then suck it up with your vacuum pump but no way would anyone advocate you drain it into the bilge.
