Synthetic oil for your Camry should run you about $25-30 and $10 for the filter. The shop charges like $20 for an oil change.
Ridiculous. Who would use Amsoil on a 93 Camry?

I purchase my Mobil 1 synthetic 0w-40 from Canadian tire when it’s on sale for like $30. Meets MB 229.5 specs. It’s actually the factory fill oil for their cars including AMG. Makes no sense for me to buy more expensive synthetics. Didn’t realize other grades are more inferior.tebore wrote: ↑Jun 15th, 2018 11:44 amSMH.
Mobil 1 has a nice sham going (It's not a real sham). Not all Mobil 1 is the same. Not all should cost $25-30 if you're getting your oil retail (even on sale) you're doing it wrong anyway. Mobil 1's common oils like 0W20, 5W20/30 10W30 are just very refined Group 3 (not going get all BITOG here) then Mobil has even higher quality oils typically to meet German Spec engines or Diesels or German Diesels (think German Castrol). So if your paying $25-30 for Mobil 1 in those grades it's overpriced. Having Mobil1 stamped on it doesn't automatically make it a better oil. For those cars it's more important the oil meets the spec in many cases Castrol GTX meets the spec but base grade Mobil1 doesn't you need to move to EP Mobil1.
Eneos is an excellent oil. I just happen to know it's very cheap in bulk. Bet you didn't know you could get 0W20 Mobil 1for $3-4 a L in bulk regular priced to a retail customer(even less for cost). Just walk up to your Toyota Parts counter and order a couple cases of Toyota 0W20.
From what you're suggesting that the OP do all that there's no saving in it there's also no reward for the effort. You're bringing like $40 in parts (retail) and still need to pay ~$20 of labour (Ideally 0.5 hours $30-40). So the OP goes from $70 to $60.
Going by the Costco standard, A synthetic oil change at an indy shop should be around $50 on the avg car (don't get much more average than a 93 Camry) so with tax and so on $60. OP overpaid by about $10. Again Eneos is a great oil.
