Why not just buy 5 jugs... it's not like it's going to go bad or expire. We usually go buy 10 at a time and now that they sell Mobil-1 filters it's a one stop shop for me. Not to mention they stick the Mobil-1 filters in plastic so they store well on the shelf. Some of the open cardboard boxes can get some surface rust after a few months in a damp cellar. I've been sticking them in zip loc bags.
We now have 3 XJ's, 3 TJ's, one ZJ in the family so that 10 jugs does not go that far...

Oil Change Thread ?

Iam do for a oil change too, last time I took it to Wally World...............they over filled it. Anyway, from the "Oil Change" thread I have a filter pegged, and I will probably use Valvoline, or Havoline, but how many quarts? Iam assuming 5, but I want to make sure. I will be doing my own oil change this time. I used to do it myself on other vehicles some years ago, but the Wally World prices seemed to be reasonable, so I just brought it to them, but as I said before those monkeys don't seem to know what they are doing. After I discovered it (the next day) I called them and all the Service Mgr. wanted to do was argue about it................great customer service. I still change the oil in my motorcycles, so I figured that I just as well do the Jeep too, especially since I will not need to jack it up. Thanks, Scooby
