Doing oil change, what size is the crush washer

It seems Walmart is the place to buy oil, $22.88 for 5qt jug of Mobil 1 full synthetic and $7 for K&N filter. They don't list crush washer by name, only by size. What is the size needed for the drain plug?

Also, I'm in the burning AZ heat so going to use 0-40, and that's what's the prior owners used from looking at the Porsche dealer records.

Also, they have a really cool 15qt drain container for $10 that I saw on Amazon for $20

Buy the crush washers from the forum host they are inexpensive. Depending on the age and mileage of your car... You may want to consider using a 5-40 spec oil due to the heat in AZ. I have been using probably some of the most expensive oil I have ever put in any vehicle I've ever owned. Joe Gibbs DT-40. Gets hot here in CT too. I think many will agree changing the oil is the best thing you can do for these cars. Enjoy.

Thank you, I was going to use 5-40 since that's what the dealer has been using.
The car is 2001 with 104k miles.

For sure, buying the window regulator from them. And also some rear suspension parts when I figure out when the little clunk is in the right rear.
