    Yes, but I doubt many oil shops bother to do so. I had bought some from NAPA, and then discovered that they are a lot less expensive at the Nissan dealer. As I remember they are less than 25 cents.

    Is the washer for the Micra copper or aluminum? Does it matter? My Honda used aluminum.

    The ones I get at my dealer are copper and are 69 cents each. Some dealers give them for free when you buy a filter.

    A penny saved is a penny earned
