    Havoline Pro DS Smart Change $10

    Found my local Walmart clearancing Havoline Pro DS smart change boxes for $10 each. It was SP rated. They only had one box of 5w30 left. Not sure if all stores are clearancing but might be worth a look!

    Bass Pro Shops 4 stroke oil

    Does anyone have any experience using the Bass Pro Shops 4 stroke outboard oil? I realize it's non-synthetic, but it appears to be FCW certified and is priced at $10 per gallon on sale (less than 1 quart of Yamalube). Is the stuff any good, or does the old adage of "if it sounds too good to...

    Any other short changers out there?

    Growing up my dad insisted that oil is cheap, engines are not. He always changed at 2,000 miles when I was a kid, and his pickup to this day is spotless under the oil cap and valve covers - no varnish on anything inside. Before switching careers, I was an auto tech around the time manufacturers...

    0W-30 in "cheap" synthetics

    Might be a Newb question, but does anyone have insight on why it seems tough to find 0W instead of 5W in the cheaper or house brand synthetic oils? I usually use QSUD in 5W30 as menards sells the quart bottles on sale for $2.99 after rebate, but not the 0W (I've only found the 0W30 in 5 quart...

    Yamaha SHO Oil

    I have a new fishing boat coming with a Yamaha VMAX SHO 200 and started doing some reading on oil for it. Sounds like Yamaha wants their Yamalube 4M or 1M, or an FCW oil in it, but I about spit my coffee when I seen what they get for the yamalube. I've read of guys running t6 5w-40 in smaller...

    0w-30 over 5w-30?

    I'm sure it's been asked before, but here goes: I was made aware of Mobil1 12 dollar rebates thanks to BITOG and picked up 2 5 quart jugs of 0w30 for around $10 each. My f150 ecoboost calls for 5w30 and I just changed to the 0w30 tonight for the winter, it gets [censored] cold here in SD. I...

    Dexos 1 Gen 2 or API-SN PLUS?

    I've noticed more synthetics on the shelf lately finally with the SN-PLUS certification. I have a 3.5 ecoboost I tow regularly with, so I'd like to use the best oil to avoid LSPI but which spec should I be concerned with? I read dexos 1 Gen 2 has an LSPI test, but have QSUD on the garage shelf...

    QSUD 5w30 or M1 0w40 In Ecoboost?

    My vehicle is an '18 F150 with the 3.5 ecoboost, max tow package. I've been using QSUD 5w30 (on sale at Menards for $3 a quart) changed whenever the oil life monitor gets to about 25% which is usually around 3500-4k in winter and about 5k in summer . It gets short trips as I only live about 5...
