I used to, but gave up changing the oil. Too messy.

YES !!!

I use a vacuum pump to suck the oil out of the dipstick tube as well as from crevices in the filter housing. NO crawling under the car and getting oil all over you. BTW: My filter is topside too.

Absolutely. A little oil on the shirt = more money in the bank.
