Not too much:
25 quarts - Mobil 1 EP 0W-20
17 quarts - @High Performance Lubricants Super Car 0W-20
15.3 litres - Mobil 1 FS 0W-40
15 litres - Castrol Edge 0W-40
11 litres - Motul 8100 ECO-nergy 0W-30
4 quarts - @High Performance Lubricants Super Car 0W-40
3 litres - Castrol Edge EP 0W-20
2 litres - Ravenol SSL 0W-40
1 litre - Pennzoil Ultra Euro 5W-40
OK, this has changed thanks to @Rand and @High Performance Lubricants, I now have 2 more cases of the Super Car 0W-40, so that's 28 quarts of that oil now.

Is that like the whole U.S. mpg vs. U.K. mpg and mph vs kph etc. thing? European 5W40 is different than U.S. 5W40? And which way do the numbers and W's adjust between the two?
Euro 5W-40's are designed for gasoline and light duty diesel engines. In North America, typically only diesels (and Euro vehicles) call for 5W-40, so the majority of 5W-40's are HDEO's, designed for heavy duty diesel engines like Delvac 1 and Rotella.

These oils are typically a bit heavier. No difference on the Winter rating, that's a standard under J300.

Having Rand bring it up avoided the insane shipping cost to Canada. Cost per quart is the BITOG discount price, which is 15% off the price shown on the site. I'd have to dig up the shipping price, but it was quite reasonable within the US.
LOL now that brought it right down to the penny a quart!

Not more than I really need for the next job. Currently, the stock is slightly high because I just took advantage of the Mobil rebate.

At least enough for one oil change on each vehicle. So that makes it:
11 quarts of 10W-40
6 quarts of 10W-30
6 quarts of 5W-20
5 quarts of 5W-30 (at least one extra as the 5W-30 car is an oil user)
5 quarts of 0W-20
3 quarts of 20W-50 (usually way more than that on hand though)

I’ve just started buying it every time I’m at Walmart or Rural King provided they have it because usually if they do it sells out quickly and I can’t afford it at the auto parts store unless it’s one of Napa big oil sale times lol.
