So far I've chickened out at doing the oil change myself. We only do it once a year (roughly 3-4k miles), and so it's just gone to the shop to be done. I had priced out the kit from atlantic british, and the extra the shop charges is pretty reasonable for labor (total for oil change has been in the 175 - 200 range, vs. 175 for the kit from AB.) Are folks managing to do these for far less using the mobil 1?

I have been using Castrol Edge Extended Performance 0W-20 in my 2016. I set a reminder for 5000 miles.

If you have a mityvac or similar vacuum system then it is dead simple. You will also need a cap wrench to remove filter housing. About 20 mins tops and you can do it in a white dress shirt.

These are Cdn costs. I'll conver t to US$ at the end.

oil: $75 for 8L (Mobil 1 extended life high mileage )
filter: $30 (WIX or Mann or Mahle)

$105 CDN = $81US.

I use pennzoil ultra platinum 5w20. Through tests on the interweb and my own oil analysis results on two different trucks it seems to be the “best” for me. I’m doing 6-6500 mile intervals on this thing.

Engine Oil I use for my 2012 LR4 Hse V8 - Mobil Delvac 1 ESP (5w-40) Advanced Full Synthetic Diesel Engine Oil 3.78L X2 (plus 400ml+ from a measuring cup) - Summer oil -------------- $67.99

Oil Filter - LR011279

The weight is based on the recommendation of an east-coast Land Rover/Range Rover Custom Builder/repairer...Whose number I got from Brit-lantic: and said repairer has been booked solid since 10-2021...I couldn't get in so I went to another reputable shop...
Changed oil every 3k or so...Every long trip I take, I change the oil/filter 1st...
