Yes, quite easy, depends on your model, in my case it was 15/40 recommended but if you are not using it for long periods, patio cleaning etc., then 10/40 was better offering more protection for cold starts, that is what I used. My oil came out looking very clean, no evidence of moisture because I keep it well away from any mist. Here is a tip, before you undo the brass nut to drain the oil, unscrew the filler a little to release pressure.

Also, if you have a model like the op then I find it easier to remove the front cover to get better access to the red plug.
