I would think that to get most of the dirty oil out of your car the most important factor would be to make sure that the engine is warmed up and the oil is hot before draining. The drain valve keeps you from having to remove the hot drain plug while the hot oil is splashing around. You just open the valve.
However you do it... keep that oil clean!
Totally, and I do appreciate the info. It's still very tempting. I hate hot oil on my hands.

Hope you fared well in Gulfport there during Isaac.
