I assume that as long as I don't decide on Amsoil products, I can get everything at Autozone, right?
Not sure, but manual says 5w20 is okay to substitute temporarily.
Edit: Actually the manual says 5w30 or 5w40 is OK for "replenishment" and 0W20 is "required for optimum engine performance and protection"

A lot of people have been getting the 5qt Mobil1 oil at Walmart cause it is the cheapest. I got some Peak oil at, and an OEM filter 3 pack and crush washers on ebay (Somerset Subaru). Comes to about $43 per change for me. Would be even cheaper with the Walmart oil.
