apples to oranges - dealerships can still charge and make good money on the easy labor involved with an oil change. sure, not as much as if you bought their overpriced oil, but they still get their fair share. it's a bit rude IMO unless you are bringing in oil that they do not supply and they gave you their blessing, but it's different, none the less.
a chef cooking your product is working for free.
