8quarts Mobil1 @ $4 per quart = $24
1 Fleece Filter @ $15 = $15
1Car Wash around $20 = $20
Sales Tax have no idea what CT have

roughly $59

but they are probably pricing oil at 6-7dollars

so i would say its not bad

different math

8quarts Mobil1 @ $4 per quart = $32
1 Fleece Filter @ $15 = $15
1Car Wash around $20 = $20
Sales Tax have no idea what CT have

just make sure they will put 8.5 QT of fresh oil[:)][:D]
and why is Mobil one in NY is cheaper, nowhere here you can get a QT. for 4$[:)] and 8 X 4$ is 32$ not 24. sorry i can't resist.

the bottom line is $80.00 is very cheap.

you beat me to it, bavenda[:)]

I can't find 0-40 in anything but one-quart bottles. The 5 quark jugs are all soemthing else. I have seen 0-40 jugs in the UK, but not in the states.

At least Walmart started to sell 0-40 here in the north east. It's $4 and change.

so would you guys do that $80 for Mobile One, a car wash and oil filter?
I'd do it in a heartbeat if they're going to put MOBIL 1 full sythetic 0W-40 ftw!! [:D] I spent close to 80bux just for the MOBIL 1 oil and OEM filter and I did the oil change myself. My dealership also is offering around that price but I don't trust them. That's just me though. [8D]

So the Mobil 1 0w-40 is the way to go? I thought i read somewhere that you can use Castrol Syntec.... is that true? I want to find a good oil that meets or exceeds MB standards that I can get localy like at Walmart. Or is that an Oxymoron:p

I found some Mobil 1 0w-40 at NAPA at 4.99 qt. But when i asked for a fleece filter they looked at me funny. So i went to the dealer and asked for a fleece filter and I got the same responce.

Does a fleece filter exist and where can i get one?

Benefits pro and con anyone?

I went with the NAPA Gold filter for less than $8.00

The fleece filter is used when the synthetic oil is changed at extended intervals, like every 10,000 miles. You may need to order the filter online.
