I've GOT to know what you have put in your oil to make it that damn expensive. Lets see, me I go down to the autoparts store, buy a case of oil, oil filter and maybe a few paper cones. Cost, MAYBE $20 and that's only if there are no sales being run. Come home, take bolt out of oil pan, let drain, change oil filter, replug bolt, fill with clean fresh oil, done. 30 minutes of my time and 1/5 of what you spend. Seriously though, what are they putting in your oil?

He could possibly be taking it into a shop and paying for the oil change....which where i work after all the tax and enviromental fees come through is about $50...many people also choose synthetic for their vehicle aswell...not very cheap and that can easily make one oil change cost upwards of $100...Hemis take around 6.6L of oil and at around $14 a liter for synthetic it makes sense!

You probably mean quarts. Lol. I put 7 quarts in when I change my 5.7L Hemi. Usually costs me around $56 for the oil. Then a few bucks for a filter, and a few to rent a lift bay because the housing I live in is very strict about automotive repairs on their land.
I got a bottle at Walmart. Can't wait to try it. Does it smell? I want to do it late at night so nobody sees the smoke, but if it stinks I'll have to do it in the middle of nowhere or something.

No he meant Liters, the metric conversion for our neighbors to the north is 6.6L.

Oh. Right. I apologize, Ruffian, I wasn't thinking about that.
