Nice score! Now take those receipts and print the Mobil rebate form. That will make even nicer.

I bet you made that score at the Autozone Black Friday sale last Thanksgiving.

As far as I can tell I'm at 108 quarts currently. Oh boy. That's 27 gallons. I should stop for a while.

At what point would it be cheaper to try to buy whole sale direct from the manufacturer

It pains me to no end to admit this ... but with that stash and such a low average cost, you can afford a few short OCIs even on synthetics.

Same here. T5 10W30 SM: 48 2.5 gallon jugs. With rebates it came to ~ .23/quart. T6 5W40 CK-4: 10 gallons at $.03/quart. All for my mechanic who is a good friend. Sam
