Default DFW - Where do you buy oil?

1. To keep this thread clean it pertains to the Dallas Fort Worth area.
2. Where do you buy your oil?
3. Are you shopping by price, location or don't care.
4. Oil you use.
5. Price you paid for a case of oil.

For those of you showing up to this thread...years later.
Prices will likely be stale. This was posted on 9/7/2017

Lately I have beengetting my oil from AeroParts & Supply, Inc. - Aircraft Parts (KRBD)

A case of oil (I use Phillips X/C 20/50.) was quoted for $64.xx I forgot what the change was.

I am naturally looking for a better price. :-)

Not in DFW area but would like to suggest you check for a DISTRIBUTOR in the local area for the best price. When I live in Los Angles, I had two distributors local and could also but Aviation Oil at Costco near the Torrance Airport.

I am lucky in the Pittsburgh area in that I have a local distributor that also has a website.

Default Not local but...

I use airplaneoil.com . They've treated me well and the shipping cost factored in to the case price is still much better than I can buy locally here.

I buy oil in Granbury Texas KGDJ just SW of Fort Worth. The airport has four cars and several great restaurants within 2 miles of the airport.

Default Thank you

Thank you all for your responses.

I forgot about Tinas. Thanks for the reminder Sid.

The airplaneoil folks do look like the cheapest at $55 a case of XC + $34 shipping for 3 cases... to Arlington, tx.

If you use Aeroshell (I did for years when I flew a 182), Tulco Oils located just north of KGPM (Grand Prairie) sells aviaton grade oil
