Much neater using the drain plug

Just loosen it and keep a good grip on it as you undo the last threads.

If you do it while the engine is cold, it should be easy.

Trying to do it by the filter will require you threading it back on, removing it, draining it, putting it back on ...until you get your 1/2 qt.

Take off the filter and put on a new one. You will lose almost a half-quart that way.

Every time I change the oil, almost no oil is leaking untill the last thread is disengaged.
Changing the filter is less messy. Alternativelly you can use a hand pump to suck the oil thru the oil level dip stick tube.
