Found out today my local Wal-Mart is not selling Chevron Supreme anymore.I was using 10w30 in my 97F150 4.2V6.Can anyone suggest a dino oil equal to or better then Chevron?I use to use Havoline and Castrol.How is the Mobil Drive Clean dino?
quote:Agreed. 'Round these parts a case of Chevron goes for $9.99. That's about 83 cents/quart. Have you tried other WalMart's to see if they're still stocking Chevron? I find it odd one store would not stock while others would. It's always been in good supply at the WalMart's I go to.

Keeping two entirely different formulations in the distribution chain increases ChevronTexaco's production and storage costs. And, to what purpose? And can anyone verify that having the rights to the "Havoline" name also includes the rights to the original formula? When Target recently closed out both Havoline and Chevron Supreme at 68 cents/qt. I cleaned their shelves of the 10W-30 viscosity. I've opened a bottle of each and sniffed. They smell identical. I realize that's not proof they're the same blend, but the residual in a bottle of the Equilon "Havoline" my neighbor used for an oil change has a much stronger odor. I also realize that different production runs will be adjusted for the base stock used for that run. But, I've always noted a particularly stronger, unpleasant odor with Havoline previously. (Seemed to work okay whenenver I used it though.)
