I usually just turn it over to the other side. I usually do this with the drain plug also. Never had a leak!

On o-rings? Didn't know there was another side...

Good catch! The point I I would reuse the o-ring a couple of times.

Right on, Daniel! I have yet to even think about replacing that o-ring!

I am too lazy to check right now, but isn't the o-ring on the fill plug? The chance of oil leaking out of there, especially with 0-ring seal, is minute! OTOH, if the o-ring is damaged, turning it over isn't going to do anything!!! ;)
