 When draining 15 qts of oil out of a warm engine on a 100 degree day, remember to open the "vent" cap on your drain pan. Because man, it REALLY comes on out of there.

 

 I intended to grab a pic of the aftermath, but Area Woman MkII was on the scene with a bag of oil dry like *snaps fingers* that

 

 Piece of cake, really, besides the incredible expense and cleanup time.

6 liter diesel in his. When I had my landscape business, I ran full synthetic and did 10,000 mile oil changes. With 3 diesel trucks I was buying oil in 55 gal drums.

For the time being I'm keeping my car. I think I got a jewel of a 6.0, but I want to use it a little before I put my full trust in it. It appears to have been extremely well maintained and is unmolested.

 

 If I do decide to daily the thing and get rid of my car, I'm going to look more into bulk oil options. Plus we'l still have my wife's car for road trips, so I don't foresee myself putting a ton of miles on it.
