I use ramps and I'm guessing the vehicle is on a 20deg incline and it took 1hr to drain (no more drops) about 6qts.
After sipping 5 beers, you should be good to go.

Just don't go for a "test drive" after the oil change is done. $20 saved on a oil change might turn into a $5000 legal bill haha.

Depends on the beer. The cheaper the beer the longer you have to wait.

Better leave it for the night to make sure it is all drained out.

Just keep drinking. Beautiful day for a garage beer, or 10.

I wait until it's coming out at a slow drip. That's good enough for me. Usually takes about one beer after opening the drain plug.

I drain it in the evening, let it drip overnight. Finish everything the next morning.

I've seen engines so sludged up that it's still dripping the next morning.

No not mine, but I look after some cars around the neighbourhood, I make it a part time weekend job. A few have been neglected.
