    Only reason to enter Walmart is to pickup the big 5qt jug of motor oil. Best to dashin + dashout.

    I keep enough to get me through 2 oil changes at least. Then I look to replace when I go into some. Don’t have enough room for 30 cases unfortunately. Have 2 kids and we have a lot of outdoor equipment for them in the garage. They love being outside.

    I run Pennzoil full synthetic 10w30. Lasts 5K miles b4 need to change again

    6qts costs bout $25 and then another $7 for filter. So $32 for full synthetic which would cost bout $70 if you paid to do it.

    I realize a lot of people love to buy from those big box stores or from your favorite online retailer, but please don’t forget your locally owned small parts stores. They are fast disappearing because they can’t compete on price due to volume restrictions based upon purchasing power. Let’s keep your local community parts stores open!

    My local parts store carries liqui-moly almost exclusively because I started requesting them to do so. It’s now their best selling engine oil product. They even get factory filters for me. I’m sure they’ll be surprised when I request a Mopar filter next time I’m in.

    You can save yourself about half the cost doing your own oil change. I spend about $40 for synthetic oil and filter, Quick lube center would charge me at least double that. Always change your filter every time you change your engine oil. Most oils out there are of a good quality, just stick with 5w-20 and change regularly.
