    Next oil change coming up so I need to pick some up but I haven't seen it cheap or discounted anywhere lately. Liqui Moly is excluded from the 20% off at Advance Auto.

    good luck trying to get it from ECS. I tried to get some to try it during their sale and it was backordered and they kept pushing my date out further and further and i just canceled. I just stick with Mobil 1 0w40.

    O’Reilly Auto Parts sells Castrol Synth 5w40 in the Chicago area. Looks like there are some locations in Atlanta.

    Thanks guys I may consider switching to 0w40 as it is much more readily available in multiple brands.

    Order from FCP Euro and it will be the last time you pay for oil. They have a lifetime replacement guarantee and they let you return everything they sell, including used oil, filters, and crush washers. You need to order your second replacement kit first, and then they will refund the order after receiving the first one back.

    Looks like its true. I would call but if you can physically return it, its legit. They had the spray cans as an example "since you can't put it back in it would not be returnable". So i think if you can ship them oil back it would be returnable.

    I have no issue spending more to buy it somewhere else. Pick it up from a local shop and help the local economy. No reason to support Walmart.

    While this sounds great I've often wondered what it'll cost to ship 7liters of what is essentially hazardous material. Can't be much cheaper if at all than just buying your own new oil locally.

    Just ship it back to them in the box it came in. I always make sure to keep the plastic bag that it comes wrapped in and seal it up with a fresh zip tie. You will be responsible for the return shipping. That typically runs me $13-15 via UPS from MA to CT.

    Wow.. Insane. How can the company stay afloat doing this though? Margins can't be that high.

    I have been wondering how they can stay alive with this also. I feel like there's something I am missing. Brake pads, rotors, all of those consumables qualify.

    Budget oil - go to walmart and get the jugs as already said. You can order online with free shipping so you don't even have to go inside.

    If you're looking for a "better" oil, you can buy Motul in a 4 pack from amazon cheaper than any of these parts places. 4 Pack - Motul 8100 X-cess 5W-40 https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...KIKX0DER&psc=1
    Comes to 34 and some change per 5 liters. Though, if you 're buying kits you're probably also not willing to store oil or search for your filter either.

    Yep, I was originally skeptical as well, until researching after reading all about it in another thread here recently. I'm getting ready to order rear rotors from them (and they have free shipping, ), and hopefully, if I keep the car long enough, get another set for free.

    FYI their free economy shipping told me my oil would arrive in 2 weeks. It showed up 2 days later.

    +1, I bought my last oil change kit from them, too bad I go in for my last Audicare service tomorrow, or else I would reorder from them and ship the old oil back. Hmm, I wonder if the dealer would give me back my used oil and filter... .

    Fcp Euro does that?! That's unreal. The first post about it, I thought it was just you guys scamming them. And taking advantage of them. But it seems real, for sure.

    That YouTube video sold me. So basically, I can buy a new waterpump and spark plugs, and send in my old one for a refund. Wow.

    How do they do it? I wonder.

    It's too bad they Don't sell more than liquimoly and oem.

    no you can only return their products..lol so with the oil change kit you initially have to buy 2 kits. for instance if you just bought one..technically you would be sending back oil/filter/drain plug that you didnt purchase from them..and they won't honor the lifetime replacement. so change it once with the kit. then when you are ready for another oil change order another kit..once it comes fill up the bottles they sent you ..filter and drain plug in the box and put everything in a bag with zip tie/send it back in the same box they used. you have to print out the return form though on the website or they wont honor it. Also dont use USPS to ship the kit back they charged me almost 30.00 I believe. someone on here said ups only charged 8 or 9.

    I understand that, by their products, you mean anything listed on the site, correct?

    So if I buy a spark plug set now, use it, then 50k miles later, buy another set from them, I can send the first set I bought back for a refund, right?

    So basically after the second set of everything I buy, it is refundable, right?
