The Cheapest Oil Change Using Zero-Cost DIY Tools – in 4K UHD


Why is this the cheapest oil change in the world? Because it includes four different DIY tools you can make at zero cost. In this video, I listed these DIY tools as four challenges. If you can make something even cheaper, then I will have the utmost respect for you.

Note that tools for oil changing are not that expensive, however if you can’t locate them or if you don’t DIY often, simple tools shown in this video would come in handy. If you do change your own engine oil often, then investing in better tools may not be a bad idea.

High definition video may help you see all of this better. This video is shot in the 4K UHD setting (if you have 4K TV, you may select this Youtube Setting/Quality).

To see the details of some of the tools I made, please watch the following videos:

Leaf Lease Lessons Learned


The title is a tongue twister but it is not as hard as getting a new Nissan Leaf. I thought I was good at getting a new car but I still messed up a bit this time. I was quick and efficient, i.e. I sent out the price inquiry email one day, and next day went to the dealership, did the test drive and got the car. However I was not well prepared, got an unexpected price increase and a couple other surprises. I am sharing everything about getting a Nissan Leaf (either lease or purchase), so that you will do better than me. I hope this video will save you time and money.

It is easier if you make a cash purchase because you only need to the compare out-door price. For electrical vehicle, there are some good reasons to lease, but then there are more variables to compare, thus you need to watch this video. I will talk about what feature/option you should get, how to compare the prices/terms, energy rebates, caveat, VPP pricing etc.
