Cheap (as in inexpensive) oil

Recommended Posts


I use the NAPA oil in everything I own, tractors, two cars, and a pickup. I have used it for years and never had a problem with it. Yes its made by Valvoline. I use different viscosity based on the vehicle recommendations.

God I'd be afraid of that! Also they have changed the description of synthetics!

They now allow a Petroleom base and I believe it's considered a class 2 then and it makes it cheaper to make. However it still doesn't give the protection of a full 100 percent synthetic! Amsoil OE ( factory oil change recommendation hence OE) is a class two or whatever they call it! That's why they can sell it cheaper!

Also keep in mind that for the first time in years the 2D Diesel fuel is selling for less then gasoline and the price of lubricants is also starting to tank. Crude oil for the last 4-5 months has been bouncing around the $50/bbl. Gasoline is starting drop again and it is unknown where it will bottom out. API hasn't played VOODOO with lube oil specs as very large fleets of trucks would have API in court. A plain fact is that crude has dropped about 70% in value and the consumer is starting to benefit from it.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
