Thanks for all of the replies.

The temps should have been about the same. We drove the same distance to the house we use for working on cars. He moved his into the garage right before the change and his car sat about 3-5 minutes before moving.

Mine sat for 15-20, then I moved it away from the curb (driveway had a bad angle) so we could get it level to rotate the tires. I've noticed that the 2.5L retains a lot of heat. My old civic would be cold after sitting for 30 minutes or so, the subaru takes a lot longer. Maybe the Sentra my friend owns is the same way.

I was probably lulled by the smooth stream that came from the Sentra that took its time to empty. Next time I'll be expecting the subbie to dump all of the oil in 5-10 seconds. I'll probably also look at the fumoto valve. Anybody with one bother to empty the pan with the valve and then remove the valve to get the residual oil out of the pan?
