First I got some concrete blocks that are used for landscape edging, they are about 2 inches high about 8 inches wide and about 12 inches long (You could also use two 2 X 10 cut about a foot long. I just drive up on these and that leave enough room to get under to the plug. Getting to the filter is easy it's right there on the front. Use a 6 point socket on the oil drain plug. They are known to get stuck and can be a little soft. I use Mobil 1 10w-30 oil. I think it's worth it for the fuel savings alone, plus you can go 5K in harsh conditions and 10K under any other conditions.
