Spotted cow! Made in my home town. You must travel to Wisconsin often to keep that stocked.

Serious question: Why an oil stockpile? I mean, I bought 20 qts of PP when it had the $20 gas rebate (about $1/qt after gas rebate) but that's an amount I could use in 12-16 months. Do you guys just have a really high CI (cylinder index) and your 50-200 qts stockpile is a year or less worth of oil, or are you buying oil for armageddon?

Good eye! As for the 0w20, while it does get cold here, it is usually only -15F a few days out of the year and there isn't that much different between 5w20 and 0w20 yet at that temp, if it were to be -25 or -35, then itd be a different story.

I change the oil in some of my family's cars, they give me $10 per oci so I try to buy oil and filters as cheap as I can without sacrificing quality (napa spin on or puro cartridge). I enjoy doing it so and I'm not try to make money or lose money. With their oil changes, I use about 60qts of oil a year.

I like the Lemon Berry too, but the Vanilla Porter is coming out soon so that makes up for it!

I've decided to add to the oil collection only if it's at fire sale pricing like your Citgo. I've got a good backlog of oil right now and need to work through it.
