I usually end up spending about $53, so not to bad. I doubt if Glenbrook would even have 5gals, lol.

They never had 0W-40 on hand lol. I think I had 2 or 3 oil changes done there. They always had to order and have it delivered from the parts store. Then they always bought 8 qts for some damn reason and left me with one spare. I kept the extra oil in the Jeep on the long trips just in case, but I think they are still on storage now.

See my other post & you know why you always got 8, lol. When they over filed my wife's I had to wait for them to get another qt since I only brought 7. When I went back to get it drained some I took them the instructions from wkjeeps, haha.

I've always done my own oil changes for the past 20+ years. No sense paying someone for something so easy that I can do myself.

It costs me about $60 for oil and filter, so not really saving any money; but it gives me the chance to check things out under there to make sure everything is good and catch something early.

Always a good idea to fill your new dry filter with oil before installing if you can , the bearings run without oil for a split second so I always fill up the filters on engines that I service. Mind you the engine I work with are worth k800+ so a little more riding on my shoulders hahaha
