We are at $80/hour labor. Oil changes (when we do one, kinda going the way of rotary dial phones and safe sex) is .3 hours, so labor on an oil change is $24, half of that is $12.

Now you're just being funny Dan!! .3 hours!! Chris Rock should be looking over his shoulder...

In my neck of the woods, an oil change is an hour's labour $87.00. Sometimes the dealer has a special on for $50, but then the Mobil 1 price is enough to make you faint.

On the C230, a simple oil change (NOT an A service) is close to $200 with taxes and disposal fees.

Anyone still wondering why I do it myself?
