im with you on this - i almost bought a mityvac but that oil filter dilemma... has anyone looked into a remote oil filter mounting option? when i saw the inverted filter on a friends tacoma, it's a wonder why that's not standard practice already..Very pricey system. The OCs are actually quite easy on Honda vehicles, but the fumoto would have just made it faster. Besides, you still have to climb under to get the oil filter off. I would use a mityvac if the filter was up top and the only reason to go under was to drain the oil pan.
