Looks like Mobil 1 synth is $6-10/qt and you'd be dropping 4-5 quarts for a cost of $24-$50. I'd clean the area around the drain and use a clean pan to collect it, then after the repairs filter it back into the engine through a t-shirt or maybe a coffee filter in a large funnel. I suppose you could use the TP or paper towels but I think I'd want to use a funnel with a screen in it in case the paper would rupture.

Or I'd wait until it's oil change time to do the repairs.
