What kind setup do you have?
I use a BMK23 set up from Amsoil; it works great. I took the pictures of the install but I haven't had time to write it up yet. You can see the set up HERE

That will last about 1 year for my truck (2 changes at about 5-7k miles a change) and about 1.5 years for my wife's car (3 changes at about 10k miles a change). It comes out to about $30 an oil change for my truck, twice a year. Comes out cheaper on the wife's car, probably closer to $20 a change. Sure you can get cheaper oil changes, but not with good oil.
That's actually pretty good. With my mileage I would need to change too often so it doesn't work for me but that is pretty reasonable.
