I don't remove the drain plug, I use a MityVac to extract it from the engine.
The plastic filter cap need to be only hand tight.
So the only tool I need for an oil change is the MityVac, no wrenches, jacks, jack stands, or ramps required, and I can do it in about 20 min without even getting my hands dirty.
