I still have enough oil for 2 more changes (PPHM), but after that I'm thinking of going with SuperTech HM...We'll see.When I buy oil, it kind've depends on my mood when I get to the store that day haha. I have a jug of QSFS to go in my Z, and a jug of M1 to go in my Accord
If I had the choice, my smartphone wouldn't be made in China. Luckily, there are a lot of oil brands that are Western owned. Maybe one day devices will be made here, we can only hope
Good stuff costs. You can run HPL for a longer intervals, as well. It evens out.. I dislike the slight knocky sound before a 2.5 warms up.. if you're feeling spendy, maybe change all or most the fluids to HPL, I feel it helps contribute to a smooth ride. HPL makes a 75W-90 idk if it is the blue or green but they have. They also have ATF equivalent to the Idemitsu HP.What is your definition of not much more? only double or is that triple 🤫
Not that I dont like HPL but my 2.5L forester with 73HP/L will get along just fine on PP or rotella gas truck I picked up for pennies.
Now gear oil.. I might fork out for some HPL.
As far as I know, Royal Purple is on the shelf for something like $32 if not $37 a bottle. That also is not much more.. when you know better, you do better. Those that stocked up on massive amounts of oils at a lower price should be commended here. Things still go on clearance etc.. and there you have the trifecta: Clearance oils (the new cheapest on the shelf since that always seems to be changing but is still $4.50 by the quart now,) everything else in the middle, then the Ultimate oils of HPL, AMSOIL, whatever your favorite Superbrew. The boxes of 6 quarts Texaco or Chevron may be the low price leader now, unless you are at Costco and they have their oil.It sounds like the extra protection or EP is to describe how much of it will still be on the shelves at Walmart being chilled by that air conditioning. Apparently they did not learn anything from Exxon Mobil when they had their annual protection oil at $50 a jug. Now I know there's a big difference between the two companies as far as quality and which one makes a better product but somebody who was marketing this should be kicked between the legs
Could say that about any major brand.
I've been using Advanced since it changed from Synpower. Back then (2018?) at Wally it was $24.97 then it went on roll back to $21.97 and stayed there for quite a while except for a brief period when Amazon and Wally were having a price war on it, I think I paid $17.95 for a couple jugs from Amazon.I wonder what's making Valvoline so expensive? Has it always been higher than the others?
I found that you can usually get Quaker State oil for the same price as super tech maybe even a little bit less if you go by quarts at Walmart. The six quart box of Chevron Havoline stuff is probably the cheapest though. Curious if they still have the 12 quart box..... and if it's actually cheaper or if they just price it the same over larger quantity.QSFS is $21 per 5 quart jug at Wm.
So how many 5 qt jugs are in 50K- you leave open the possibility of having purchased $50K worth of 50K miles worth.Absolutely. I have had an affinity toward Mobil 1 since I was a kid just starting out. Cash is king though and I picked up about 50k worth of Pennz Plat 5-30 on the cheap. I'm about 6 weeks away from an OCI on 17 3.6 engine and will do a UOA to compare to Mobil 1. My driving patterns are pretty consistent. I expect the same vanilla results.
