What we need to see is more people use it and post UOAs in order to judge how good or bad it is--just like for any other oil we discuss on here. It's simply pig-headed to dismiss it just because it's Wal-Mart's house brand (especially since we know who makes it and have the full data sheets for it) or because it's a Group III. We've got one UOA on this oil and it performed well. I don't think a VOA of it has been posted yet.

quote:I'm not trying to be an oil snob, nor was I knocking the product. I just don't see anything from the data sheets I see, that tell me someone should switch from Mobil 1 for 7.5K runs. I actually like some Group III's also and we are a supplier to Wal-Mart, so no predjudice here. I just don't see the additive pak????, and the price does not convince me that chemistry like in GC or Amsoil we don't see is present. Why is it not rated ACEA A5,B5? Feel free to try it and I didn't mean to offend.
Originally posted by Patman: G Man is right, don't automatically assume that because the price is low, the oil will suck. Just look at how good the Supertech oil filters are, but yet are the lowest priced ones out there. I'm running Tech 2000 (Canada's Walmart brand) synthetic 0w30 in my mom's car. It isn't as cheap up here ($21 for a 4.4L jug, compared to $28 for a 4L jug of M1) but it's worth a shot. I'll have a UOA in the fall, when she reaches close to one year on that batch of oil.
