Value priced full synthetic motor oil

Recommended Posts

John_in_Oxford

I have little to no allegiance when it comes to oil - if it meets specs - it's OK in my book. And I really like synthetic oils - been using the stuff for decades - everything but the price.O'reilly brand, $5.49/qt. I bought 10w30, but they also have 10w40 and the usual other suspects.http://www.oreillyauto.com/Posting a direct link is useless, it apparently has a session timeout.Just enter "Full+Synthetic+-+10W-30" in their search bar.

I use rotella straight 30W year around .

I tried Valvoline 50/50 synthetic in a old 8hp kohler i had. it burned oil and started leaking from the head. switched back to 30W and the engine went back to normal.

I also use use rotella straight 30W year around. I've never tried any of the Synthetic oils cause they cost to much for me and I've never had a problem with good oil real oil.

I just want to point out, the topic of this thread is NOT "What kind of oil do you use, and do you want to argue about it"id="red">.

It's just a heads up for inexpensive synthetic oil.

Thank you very much.

If you keep an eye out, NAPA brand is occasionally on sale for less than 4 bucks a quart. I have also found Peak full synthetic at Odd Lots for 3 bucks a quart.

Well, shows what I get for not shopping more often. WallyWorld has their own brand 10w30 5qts/$17.47 - just under $3.50 a quart.

I think I'm gonna go burn up a Grant on some oil & gear lube...

Googling, "the usual suspects" claim WallyWorld oil is made by Mobil, and NAPA by Valvoline.(shrugs) Heck, it can be made by Mongolians from goat cheese for all I care - so long as it meets specs.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
