Best place to buy oil?

Online or any parts stores? Where do you prefer to buy from? Best prices as well maybe? Time for an oil change, just looking around

Re: Best place to buy oil?

advance auto has good deals on mobil 1 sometimes. 5 quarts mobil 1 and mobil 1 filter for $29. I end up with an extra quart, but I always find a use for it, or use it on my next oil change.

Re: Best place to buy oil?

believe it or not, you CAN get just oil & a filter (w/ new plug washer) from your local Honda dealership. They dont have to change your oil, but they'll probably offer to- just go straight to the parts dept or counter and make the order.

this may not apply to most of you guys; just wanted to post another option. I find that OEM can cost as cheap as car stores, depending on brand. you know, just an fyi for those less picky/technical about their oil

but for the same price, why not get a better oil? like maxlife? which is better than that oem stuff....
