I dont think so, if it was better to suck the oil out the top of the engine, car manufacturers would recommend this and sell you the tool to do it.

I doubt you'd be able to remove as much oil also. its better to drain via gravity.

Definitely not on an LP, as all you would get out is the oil in the sump tank. Which is about 15% of all the oil. There are 7 drain plugs for a reason on an LP.

The reason there are seven drain points is because the oil hides in those points and must be drained.

I agree with all of the above. Also because there is a high chance you'd leave sediment.

And changing the oil by draining it gives you a chance to check everything underneath
