Hi everyone,
So as the title implies, I received a text message from a friend asking about oil from Wal Mart. He was heading to Wal Mart to purchase 5 qts of 5w30 oil (he was not interested in any other viscosity) and he wanted to know what the "absolute best" oil that WM carried in 5w30, price is no object. Since he was on his way I quickly rattled off M1 5w30.
Did I give him good advice? I curious what do others think the "best" 5w30 oil sold at WM is?

Thank you

Different Walmarts carry different oils, but probably all of them carry M1, so that is a good choice. EP is better, but nothing wrong with regular M1.
M1 is still the most popular synthetic oil and has been proven for a long time.

PP Euro L 5w30 dexos2
Castrol Edge 5w30 A3/B4 Euro formula is also good.

Do any Walmarts still carry PUP? :unsure:
Some might even carry a 5w30 synthetic HDEO

There is no "best" oil. You recommended an excellent 5w30 oil for sure, so no worries. Most name brand synthetics are top notch, no concerns with any. IMO, Mobil 1 is probably the king of OTC oils.

Considering the way your friend asked about "what is the best oil at Walmart", you did well.
Although M1 may not be my first choice, you can't go wrong IMO.
