so for the hell of it maybe it was out of guilt? I bought a quart of their oil just to have as a top off oil..
I've been buying the high-moly Mazda branded 0W-20 for our Mazda3; Amazon sells it for a decent price.

Changing oil is quick and easy. I use plastic ramps from Harbor Freight. Is you use a jack get pucks so you don’t deform the flange jack points.

You already got the important responses giving you the single lift points front and rear. I'll also echo the advice to get some ramps - they are very handy for oil changes.
I'm a big believer in changing your own oil. Of course, I wouldn't do it if they were free from the dealer or if I didn't have a garage. But changing oil is simple and gives you a chance to bond with your car and inspect the car from underneath - giving you a chance to plan for things like brake replacement or catch a small leak before it becomes a problem.
