I do it because I enjoy it and because I hate to go to the dealer, spend $70 for oil that may not be as good, and then wait an hour or two, when I know they are spending most of that time not working on my cAr. Nothing worse than having an appt at. 10, then have your car sit outside till 10:45 before they start. Then they leave it to drain for like 10 mins and send you on your way.

Personally I am much happier popping the valve on my fumoto open letting it go for an hour while I have some coffee on my couch. Then coming out and swapping the filter, filling it up and being on my way.
