FYI, Advance Auto now carries Formula Shell 5w20. It's 2.99 a qt. Good oil from what I am reading here. How much different is it really from Pennzoil or QS?

I'm sure it's fine, but @$15.00(approx)5qts., it's more expensive than many oils that I would consider better, including, but not limited to PYB, MC, MC5k, Valv Conv, Maxlife semi, and QS(at least as good)$10.50. Price would need to be much lower to pique my interest.

IIRC Pennzoil would have the best add pack of the three. I'm not sure where it stands with QS, it is a good oil. I'm currently finishing my final A-Rx rinse with it, no problems at all.

Seems like a really good deal for a Sophus product. Should be more than fine for a 3000k oci, right?
You could do 5K without a problem IMO!

Never seen 5w20 FS @ Target. Might be now, but last I checked none. IMO, if given the choice I'd go QS for less and 5w20 everday @ Wally. JMO

Our Target (Pensacola Bayou Blvd) has carried it for a long time. Used to be only $1.99 per qt., but I think it has gone up to the low $2 range as Nick reports. You should be able to find it for less than $2.99.

That seems to be the best conventional deal in quarts.
