*Why not drain and fill only 1 quart of oil every other oil change.* (to put your mind at rest, especially if your only concern is that the original oil loses its effectiveness over time).
1) Yes, that is a good idea, I didn't expect it to gush.
2) This DIY is only here to help people out, if anyone feels uncomfortable DON'T DO IT. Keep in mind, this is at your own risk.
3) If you drain it, might as well drain it all the way; doesn't make sense to drain out only a quart at a time.
