Turkey tools...

Just a quick tip...today when I changed my oil, I used an extra turkey roasting pan to catch the oil. It is about two inches lower than the screw-top oil pan that I have been using, it costs about two bucks (the one with wire handles that run underneath the pan), and it is large enough to catch the oil from the drain as well as the oil running off the foil from the oil filter. I was presently surprised, because this is the first time I have changed the oil without spilling any on the garage floor. Hope this helps...

Aluminium foil also works great to get it into the oil bins that they sell from advanced auto, just form a little trough

Absolutely, tvetree recommended that and it works great draining into anything you've got.

Also works as a belly pan for track days. May not pass tech for racing though.
