I don't buy oil on the web. I buy it by the case when it is on sale at local stores, with a rebate offer. Typically after rebate it averages about $2 per quart. As others have mentioned I stocked up on filters when they were on sale, so I have plenty of them on hand. I keep my cars for many years and stockpiling oil and filters is economically advantageous for me.

No matter what you spend on your oil change, ordering the report will add $35 to the actual cost. Some of us think it's worth it, and some of us think it's not.
Since you don't post a vehicle .... Does it only use 4 quarts ??
Again 90% of vehicles use at least 5 quarts

My point is you make random comments that reduce your credibility

Again (failed to read) by ordering a report you can do LESS oil changes so it doesn't add to the cost (fail =10 +35)

And it is alittle oxymoronic to go to all the trouble to save money on oil and filter then wastefully use it up???
