Money Saving Tips: Change Your Own Oil
Save around $84 per year on oil changes!
In order to keep your car in proper working order, it’s important to change the oil about every 3,000 miles [if you use the regular or “conventional” quality oil]. This will save you money in the long-run. Changing your car’s oil in a timely manner means you’ll change it about once every 3 months [depending on how much you drive].
The Average oil change costs around $39 for up to 5 quarts of oil.
You can buy 5 quarts of standard oil and a filter for around $18.
If you change the oil yourself, you can save around $21 each time your car needs a change.
That’s $84 per year you can be pocketing!
If you don’t know how to change the oil in your car, consider taking a class at a community college or having a “car savvy” friend teach you. Learning to change your own oil is a life-long investment that will save you hundreds of dollars!
