After a DIY oil change I run the waste oil (in a permanent container I use with a funnel, to catch the drain oil) down to a Mr. Lube outlet, just a short walk down a trail from us. There I can pour the oil out myself, into a big tank they have. But then, I've got 4~5 one liter new oil bottles to give them too. I drain them well, let them sit a day, then do a second pour, and invariably get another tablespoon or two of oil out of each. This started bugging me, so I contacted the Service Manager of our nearby Toyota Dealership, asked about buying bulk oil from them. The guy was very receptive, so I followed through, have done this once now. I had some oil 4 liter canola oil bottles kicking around. I thoroughly cleaned/dried them, then marked some gradations on them (the latter's kind of pointless, but hey). I also picked up a one liter graduated pitcher on Amazon. Worked out...
