Default Should I buy OW-20 oil for my Honda civic hybrid or should I let Toyota do it?

I have a 2008 Honda Civic Hybrid, I have an incredible offer that I purchased from the local Toyota dealer for an oil change, however, the dealer does not have the OW-20 oil that my Honda manual says is optimal. The manual says that for the best mileage, I need to use OW-20 or I can use 5W-20 as secondary/less optimal options. So, my question is, should I buy OW-20 from an outside source and have the people at the Toyota dealership use it (they said that this was not a problem) and if so, how many quarts should I buy? Or, should I just let the Toyota dealership use whatever synthetic oil they recommend (with a $25 surcharge they told me about) ? I really like the great gas mileage that my Hybrid gets and I do not want to compromise this in any way, but I have read a lot on the net that says that these specialty oils are not really necessary. What to do?

For $25 you can buy all the oil you need (roughy $5/qt for 5 qts), so just buy what you want and take it there.
