I still collect the last bit of oil. I save a cardboard oil case,. cut off the tops of 6 plastic cans put then in the bottom and turn the fresh oil cans upside down and let them drip. I used the collected oil in squirt cans, for the drill press, lubing farm machinery and my model T speedster. has the flipper oil caps on the front spindle king pins, spring snackles,, etc
I usually buy motor oil in case of 6 or 12 bottles. As I use a bottle, I put the cap back on, and place it upside down back in the box to let the remaining oil drip to the new "bottom".
