Yeah, I'm cheap. I prefer to use the work "frugal".
There's a Fred's Discount store in my town that is selling their brand (Fred's) oil filters for $1.50 each. They also have Fred's Mercon/Dexron III for $1.00 per quart. And Havoline 10W-30 for 99 cents.
I could do an oil/filter change with Fred's products for under 7 bucks, including tax.
Does anyone know who makes their filters? They also have Havoline filters. Who makes Havoline?
