Unless I pick up Mobil 1 0W40 on sale, 8.5 quarts plus fleece filter costs me about $70. You cant expect your mechanic to work and only make $10 profit (if that).
I am curious what "extended" means?
Have you changed your air filter recently? Have the fuel filter, plugs, wires been changed according to the service intervals? I assume that with the preventative maintenance, your mechanic is at least referring to the air filter. With cars that are not drive a lot, I believe it is a good idea to change the oil at least once a year.
