First, Unless your currently wearing "Depends" and taking arthritis meds to reach that drain plug, I doubt you were doing this before I
Second, I also grew up around cars. Was changing oil on work trucks and tractors way before I could legally drive them on the streets. Worked my way through college in my Dad's body shop.
Third, I was just giving my opinion to the same question... and a rationale for it. It wasn't intended to challenge your response. No offense intended.
Fourth, I bought an FB brand new way back in the day and didn't remember how much room there was. That pic reminded me. The most important issue in all this is getting the oil changed on a regular interval. Doing it your way may not be ideal IMO, but if it helps the OP keep on a schedule, it's worthwhile.
