A few questions about oil change - USA spec:

What is Ring, General, part # 000-180-26-09 and it costs $0.50. Is this the filter gasket or some kind of washer? I was charged $5.75/quart for Mobil-1 0W40, part #Q-1-09-0010. All they had to do was walk to WalMart almost across the street, buy the thing for under $4/quart, save me some dough and make me a very happy customer. Total for oil change: Parts $66.95, labor $25.00. It's still not that bad though, but I do wonder what the A service will cost.

In case you're wondering, yes, I decided to dump the factory-fill synthetic blend at 3K and go for the full Mobil 1. Now, I'll stick to the FSS/13K annual service.

The ring is more than likely the oil drain washer. I do my oil changes with the same oil. On my last change, I installed a fumoto valve so I should never need to change the washer. The price per quart seems way too high, especially since the dealer probably buys by the 55 gallon drum. The cheapest I have purchased is around 4.50 per quart. I wish Mobil 1 would sell in larger containers. The last time I called Mobil, they only sold in quart and 55 gallon drum.
They now have a 5qt bottle, and it covers most of their weights. You'll have to check if the 0W40 comes in the 5qt bottle though. I'm not sure.
