First time I've been in DG in a while, went to the Automotive aisle. Saw a couple of interesting things. First off, the house brand Warren/Unilube they have is now SH rated. Before all they had was the "Approved for gasoline engines" donut on the back. Wasn't there a law passed a while back that required Oil manuf. to state the SAE rating? they still had the ND 30 and 10w40 weights. Also now they carry STP motor oil and transmission fluid. The tranny fluid is Dex III/Merc with the H spec. The oil is 10w30 and 10w40 SM rated and it doesn't look like it's made by WPP. It's a dark red bottle that kind of looks like a Maxlife quart. Has anybody used this? At 1.35 a quart it has the potential of becoming my new Havoline.

Was "Mr. Sandman" playing over the intercom?

Who is rating it SH? SH rating no longer exists as a valid rating.

Nope. I think it was "Smoke on the Water". [Smile]

I take it back, it was the SF rating, 1988 and before.

I guess at $1.35/qt, "dollar general" loosely follows the "dollar store" charter? [I dont know] Coming soon to compete with the incredible shrinking hershey bar: The "pint and a half" bottle of oil to meet the $1 price point. [Big Grin]
