many many years ago against my better judgement I worked at an oil change place for a couple years. This one was an independent owner,not a franchise. This guy was honest to the core. If you tried selling a customer a new air filter,wipers,whatever,it better damn well need changed!! You took a hit in commission if you got caught selling things when it wasn't needed. This guy had a great reputation in the area and made a lot of money in his business. And he did use quality oil(pennzoil or quaker state,can't remember which). but he got huge discounts because he bought in bulk. He had a computer program that when the license plate number was entered into it,it would give the history of oil changes,air filters,whatever so you would know by mileage if it was due to be changed or even needed checked.
