    I'm looking into changing my oil in my 2018 tacoma v6 and Amazon is showing $25 for the filter and $25 for the oil wrench. Granted the wrench will last, still $50/DIY oil change sounds ridiculous, hell the dealer does it for 60! Can anyone recommend where to find high quality filters for less?

    Most people I know prefer Wix oil filters. Not sure about the price, but the one for my 2015 v6 is about $9. My TC uses a cartridge style filter and that one is around $10-11 I think

    At least the wrench is a one time purchase. Unless you lose it:D

    Check your dealer's parts department if it's convenient, I get them for $4 each

    I think Amazon has a case of 10 filters for around $40.

    In Hawaii we pay double for everything.......that's why it's $8, on line shipping kills it even worse....

    Wonder if there's a shelf life for filters, after which the adhesives and cellulose media break down. 10 filters can take 5 years to use up for some people.

    Not compared to what it experiences with the heat cycling of oil in the engine.

    Shelf life is nearly decades.

    I just bought a filter from the dealership yesterday. I was expecting up scaled prove. But 5.75 with filter and gasket.
