quote:"ISOSYN" can mean either Group II, II+, or Group III, since it is Chevron's trademark name for their hydrocracked and isodewaxed base oils. However, from what I've seen, they do not market their Group III under the ISOSYN name. Chevron calls its Group III base oils "UCBO," for "unconventional base oil." You won't find the ISOSYN logo on the Chevron synthetic oil bottles.
Originally posted by cheeks: As for your questions, it would be nice if one or two of the many intelligent people on this board could answer if the "ISOSYN" label on the front of the Chevron Supreme bottle does in fact mean "Group III"....
quote:That's simply not true. Still, it is a great oil for the price. I have a garage full of Havoline (same as Chevron) that I bought for $0.68/qt at Target.
Originally posted by msparks: Well the reason I asked about the Group II/III thing is because I have someone on another board telling me that the regular chevron supreme is a full group III and it sells for $1.08 a quart.
quote:You missed the big sale they had on Havoline oil. I posted it in this forum and I believe alot of folks loaded up on it. I agree that their regular prices are high so you need to watch for sale items. I've bought Mobil1 many times for $2.89/qt when everyone else was selling it for $4+.

quote:Noted the exact same thing at my local Target. The auto section appears designed to appeal to the 15-19 crowd and the ladies. I wonder what happened to all of the Havoline 2 cycle oil? A few weeks ago all of the Havoline oils were gone except for what seemed to be hundreds of quarts of the 2 cycle oil. Now it is all gone. I suspect they pulled it off the shelf and it will be sold to some discounter/liquidator.
Originally posted by MNgopher: If the trend at my local Targets is any indication, buying anything automotive at Target will become a thing of the past soon. The oil selection is down to Car and Driver Oil (Target House Brand), Penzoil, and Mobil 1. Nothing else. Just a few weeks ago, they did have Texaco Havoline, but no more - that would explain the cheap sale a few weeks ago.
