engine oil drain plug torque

Anybody out there who does their own oil changes and is compulsive enough to use a torque wrench, can you tell me what torque to use for the drain plug?
Much obliged!

From the SM - "Tighten drain plug to 40 N·m (30 ft. lbs.). "

Thank you!
Just coompleted my first DIY oil change on my compass (6k) .before going on a road trip to the Eastern Sierras later today.
I did switch to Mobil 1 5w-30. Unfortunately the only oil filter I could find was a Fram.

The NAPA oil filter, 7073, is now available. Same as WIX 57073. My local store had to get it from their wearhouse, overnight service, no extra charge.
