Winterblend was tested by customers in Fargo and Winnipeg last winter, before it was on the market. This year I couldn' t find it in Fargo, but did find in at the Grand Forks,ND Walmart.
I paid $2.34 so I bet yours was maked down because of slow sales. In Grand Forks they also had QS WinterBlend in 10W30, you can bet this will be on sale as in this frozen north the only weight in Winter is 5W or 0W30.
Read previous links on this product, it sound great to me.
I see we have some people here that frequent the
Grand Forks area (live there).
I run a 93 Ford Tempo and had
though about an UPGRADE to a Taurus. After
finding out that the wife and I could not afford
it we decide to stick with the Tempo. This does
not include the horror stories with the Taurus tranny.
I have found the manual tranny in most cars
to be more durable.
The thing is built like a tank. Yea, I will
admit it has had a water pump go out but it's at
112,000+ miles. I have been running Pennzoil
5w30 lately and have had good luck. I had
thought about doing an ARX treatment though.
BTW- I have never pulled a valve cover off to
check for build up. Is it really difficult ?
