i was in the tractor supply on the weekend, it was racked right beside some Cheveron, the bottles were the same, may not mean anything though.

I believe Traveller oil is supplied by Warren Performance. If it has a WPP or WNE on the bottom of the bottle, then that's it. This is the same oil supplier for Walmart Supertech and many other house-brands. Decent oil, but depending on price point, it may be cheaper to buy from Walmart.

For a "normal" application and OCI, I'm sure it will suffice just fine. I would be leary of pushing out the OCIs past 5k miles without some UOA justificaiton.

I believe in some situations there may be benefits to shorter oil change intervals using inexpensive dino rather than synthetic. Using a less expensive oil that still meets API certification makes good sense.
