I was at mY local joe's sporting goods store, and they were having a going out of business sale. I picked up a case. Of havoline deposit shield at just under $2.00 a quart. Here's the question. I used havoline back in the 90s. With good results, but haven't used them since they got bought out by chevron in 2001. Is this oil still a good oil?

I believe many loaded up on this oil when WalMart closed it out a month or two ago. You may see more talk about it when people get around to using it. The pre Deposit Shield Havoline was highly regarded on this site. Not sure why DS dropped off. If I recall it was about increased price vs. what other oils were out there for less......

I recon you are right. Because havoline is not as cheap as it used to be.
