   Do they also sell a flat driveway? Mine's rather steep.

   They use Pennzoil or Ohio State and those have too much parafin in them
for me. I use Valvoline in the gas engines and PetroCanada DuronXL in the
diesel.

   I can fit the Pathfinder and the Escort part way into the garage; the
former is high enough but the latter needs to be lifted. In both cases I end
up cleaning oil off the floor. My diesel pickup I do across the sidewalk,
with the right front tire on the driveway. It, too, tends to be messy,
especially when the oil filters are replaced.

   On a lift with a can/pan underneath to catch all the oil it's a lot
quicker (no cleanup) and easier.
