You could simply make one trip to the dealer and buy a bunch of the
washers. Then you could have Jiffy Lube use them as needed.

Of course, you're never sure the Jiffy Lube guy actually uses it...

It's a one-use washer. It's a crush washer. It's designed to seal the
bolt against the pan. Once crushed, any re-use of it won't serve the
purpose. You might as well not use it.

Of course. There's no magic to it.
