Here is how to tell who makes it...

This is incorrect info. SuperTech is made by Warren Distribution a 90+ year old company, not Warren oil. Two different companies. Same oil as Costco's Kirkland and Amazon Basic. Good oil period.

I just noticed Supertech has 4 flavors of oil

Flavor #1
All Mile- A synthetic blend rated 1 star

Flavor #2
Full Synthetic- A step up!

Flavor #3
High Miles

Flavor #4
Advanced Full Synthetic! ...and a premium price for about the same as premium name brands like Mobil 1 and Valvoline. 4 gold stars are placed next to this one!

I will believe all marketing claims by Super Tech from now on because they gave even their flagship oil a mediocre rating for extreme-temperature protection. That is humble. All other companies give their flagship oils four stars in all categories. ;)

I haven’t checked the prices of ST lately but in the spring they had crept up into “name brand” levels. And because of that I stopped shopping/looking at Super Tech. No need if I can pay the same, or near the same, for Mobil1 or whatever. So that’s what I’ve been doing - Mobil1 EP 0W20 for 10,000 mile intervals - which is something previously I’d never consider doing...but so far so good.

I guess my goal was to place myself back into the previous ST price range, and I did that by buying Mobil1 EP and extending my interval to 10,000 miles (compared to 5,000). Sounds like a good idea, but it won’t be if my engine is worn out at 150,000 miles. 😁 But my UOA came back looking outstanding. And I don’t think I’ll ever go back to Super Tech. Then again I’ve said that sort of stuff before, and when price/demand/whatever, returns...I go back. 🤣🤣🤣
It has calmed back down. The really expensive line they introduced didn't work out and the pries are back to where they were.

ST in 2 of my older/more basic teenager vehicles, use the basic 10K syn one. No drama. $20 is the same price basically as QS so getting into name-brand territory so the value proposition isn't what it was when it was $15.

I don't know how I missed this news. Thanks @PimTac :

They clearanced it out everywhere 2 summers ago, I wonder what price it'd ring up for at your store, they blew it out around here for like $3 or $4/jug .
Checked my local store and they are no longer going to carry 0w-16. They claim there is no demand for it. They had 2 qts in stock.

My WM had maybe 5 jugs total of ST oil last week. Settled on Quaker State FS HM for $19.97. I'm sort of glad the ST stockout got me to notice a good name brand oil at a good price. It is on the thin side though so probably won't buy it again unless forced to.
