The oil filter housing gasket cost me $102 at a local independent, $120 for the fuel filter.

- $7 for the gasket, $95 to to replace it (1 hour time )
- $60 for the fuel filter, $60 to replace it (half hour)

Remember when you going to a dealership, EVERYONE you basically talk to needs to get paid. The secretary, car porter, service writer, mechanic, car wash boy, owner etc.,

When you go to a independent shop, the mechanic is usually the owner, so you pay one guy only.
