Sorry guys! Sharing with all. Not sgarring lol.
Bought the oil back in November ,2013.autozone here.clearance. *9.amd 79 cents,something like that, clearance of $3.and something cents. Snatched them all up.now using what's left of them.
 
Was?

I still have quite a bit…and bought the new Platinum Ultra SN when I could get it cheap.

I am five jugs away from looking for the next best thing in 5W30…
Ya wish i would have bought more myself !
Ran the original Ultra in my 2006 300 3.5 liter which was supposed to be an oil burner ! used the recommended weight of 10w30 and at 100000 still barely moved off the full on the dip stick on 8000mile oci.
 
Doing it at a stop n shop below level parking lotim halfway,doing a flush after using stp pro series intake cleaner. Ran Napa 10w30 oil and super tech 3387a half hour.let it rest half hour drain,refill.
:unsure:
 
So, after reading that several time to comprehend it all, you actually ran a new batch of oil and a filter in between the change to “flush the engine” ?
That I did sir.been doing it for years not w.reading on it while back. I bought Napa reg oil,sake $17.99 5 quart container. Run it. With super tech filter,about 30-35 minutes.on and off the gas pedal. Let it sit,30 more minutes, and more dark black oil comes out.
 
Why not run a $10 can of for-purpose Liquimoly Engine Flush for a more thorough drain at more than half the price of a complete "flush" oil change?
