Hi,
I suck mine out always now. I use a Pela oil extractor. It saves all the hassle of removing the under tray and undoing the sump plug. Very impressed I am

Its ok sucking out the oil on most cars but things like the AMG engines have two sump plugs due to having a saddle sump, sucking them out only drains one part of the sump!!

Found it,,its next door to the box dip tube with a push in cap,, tried the box dip stick and it goes along way up it, but the test was done in my driveway,and you know what that is like, so I can calibrate it later.:D:D
