I see M1 0-40 or 10-40 High Mileage at Walmart for about $25 for 5 quarts.
I buy Bosch or Mann filters from eEuro, usually 3-4 at a time. SO it costs about $30 for an oil change, which I do 3X a year (every 5 K) on wife's 9-5, 2X a year on the old 9K (same interval). Bosch filters have been about $3 the last couple time I ordered.
I'm cheap and this doesn't seem excessive to me. If I see the M1 on sale I'll get 2 or 3 5 qt. jugs at about $22 each. Haven't done the ship to store thing yet. Doesn't cost WM anything: A truck is going to the store anyway.
