MojoMyCivic has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Oh, I've got 34,000 miles on my car already. It was full synthetic from Mobile 1. I used to go to valvoline for their synthetic blend, didn't even feel or notice any difference, cost me 45 bucks each time. Then the manager "suggested" that I shall use their full synthetic, and it was 60 bucks a pop. Of course I didn't go for the valvoline synthetic, 60 bucks is ridiculous.

I've been wanting to do my own oil change, but I never get to park in the garage, and the driveway is a little bit downhill slopping. Plus, I live in Minnesota, where in winter the temp can drop to -30F. And I have two jobs, a gf, and school to attend. The only time I am home is either real early in the morning or late at night. But now, I figured out my sister's working schedule so I can sneak my car into the garage and get jiggly with my vic. I noticed immediate difference after I changed the oil, the acceleration was a little bit better, mpg-wise, I will have to wait to see if there's any changes.
