Make sure they don't do a similar tactic on you.
Oh..the free oil change was based on our normal oil (5W-30) you need "Special oil" so you will have to pay $xxx a quart for your car.
And don't let them try to tell you it will void your warranty if you use 5W-30
Both 5W's are made from the same 5 weight stock. the 30 blend just has more Viscosity Index additives that allow it to flow like a 30 weight oil at 212 degrees F. They both flow the same at zero degrees (the 5W spec)
