Yeah, the avg. oil change runs me $27 I believe, with a coupon. I do almost everything else myself, so it's nice to take a break with the small stuff. I own a filter wrench but don't even have an oil drip pan
Used to borrow them when I did it myself.
I will say, when you lose oil to the degree I do on occasion (especially during hotter months), it makes it very easy to tell when oil is put in by an oil jockey at a Firestone or JLube, as the dipstick reads well above add & is nice n honey colored when done
I've even sharpied my filter before just to make sure it got changed with a new one. Never had a problem but a supervisor would get a ****ing earful if I ever ran into someone trying to cheat me on an oil change.
The place in town that one chooses to go can make an impact in how the work is handled
