Im using BP Visco 7000 0W40 5.8 liters and Mann oil filter. 1 liter Visco 7000 costs 140kr/liter is equal with 19.18 us dollars * 6 = 115.07 us dollar. Mann filter 69kr = 9.45 us dollar. Based on exchange rate 7.30 us dollar Its rather expensive here in Sweden if we compare with the price in Usa.

Honda Civic 5w20 Castrol GTX - 1.29 (x3.7) Purolator + - 2.50 Sam Adams/Pyramid Hef - 1.50 (x2) ~10 bucks I use conventional because I can hardly wait 3k miles to change my oil. I think it's a sickness, but at $10 an oil change, it's cheaper than any other other entertainment I can think of. Although I did go search for GC today to no avail...I'm haven't made up my mind if this is good or bad though.

$24.95 by the Subaru Dealer, OEM Filter and Exxon SuperFlo bulk oil. The best part is I get paid to work while its done, they have wireless internet service there.

I once added up all the oil changes I did to my 85 Omni, which ran to 165K before I sold it.... $350! That was with Fram filters and Castrol 20W-50 every 3K.
