I've read on the German Berlingo forum that the preferred method to remove the old oil prior to changing filter and filling with new oil is to use an oil pump with a tube inserted thru the dip stick hole. The claim was that the drain plug is not at the bottom of the oil sump and about 0.6 l of old oil will remain in the sump. Any thoughts or recommendations on this method? I've always used the drain plug on previous motors but my Berlingo is too low to the ground to get under it conveniently so the pump out method looked interesting.
