Stupid question time and one I haven't had a chance to verify for myself. How is the oil pan tilted? My driveway is sloped and I'm trying to figure out if I can use ramps going either way or if I need to take it out on the street.

When you remove the oil pan bolt, the oil stream shoots towards the driver's side, front wheel, therefore it doesn't matter which way you face the ramps. Assuming I understand your question.

My driveway is also sloped so I point the car downhill to use the ramp stands, but the car doesn't need to be exactly level to drain the oil - even if there are a few ounces left it's inconsequential.

I wasn't worried about it being exactly level. I was just trying to figure out if it would work better tilted one way or another. :)
