    I paid Rick $20 for picking up some Valvoline for me & paid another F-Chatter Ron $10 for the Baldwin filter.

    Performed the oil change at Rick's house. Was a lot of fun. :)

    It's nice to meet people that know what they are doing.

    The 348 DOES take 11 quarts of oil. I have been doing my own oil changes for 14 years on my 348. Here's the cost:

    11 quart Mobil1 @$5 each....$55
    1 oil filter..........................$15
    Total................................$65

    Don't complain about Fcar labor costs....do it yourself and put them out of business...and have fun in the process!

    Ciao
