Gosh Richard, if you change your oil & filter every 750 miles, you could probably donate it to someone and they could use it for another 3000 miles or so. @ 750 miles , it should still be like new oil.
I have to use an oil pump, extractor on my boat engine as there is no drain plug.
On my MH , I need a pump to put tranny fluid in because there no room to tip a qt bottle up to fill it. Almost need it for the engine oil too. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

I should clarify that I change the MH oil every 3,000 miles; it's the Mercedes that I change every 750 miles. But I bought the vehicle new in 2001 and it currently only has 4,500 miles on it, so it's not like I change it monthly or even close to that. Part of the high oil-change cost is due to 8 quarts of Mobil 1 5W-40 ESP synthetic that it takes, which is almost impossible to find except at M-B.
