Trop Arctic - Just as good as most?

Mar 28, 2009
I just grabbed about 20 quarts of this stuff from Walmart which has the 10-30 and 10-40 on closeout at $1.00 a quart. It's the synthetic blend. Is this stuff just as good as the normal dino stuff out there like Pennzoil yb, mobil 5000, valvoline premium etc etc... If so, I think I'll go back and grab the rest of the 10-30 they had. I have a 2004 Yukon Denali and 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5s. Live in Arizona so I don't see any problem with the 10-30's as opposed to 5-30's. Always use a Wix filter...

What's the norm on an oil like this, around 5,000 miles before changing it out?

Thanks guys.

it's good stuff, esp for the money
one dollar is great deal

5000 miles is ok if the motor is in good shape and in tune for a average driving style, but i wouldn't go above 5000 miles without a UOA first

I wish wally world still carried the 5w-20 or 5w-30 synblend

Thanks for your help Miller Man. My wife is going to think I'm crazy coming back with another 20 quarts. Haaa
I run the 10w30 syn-blend Trop-artic in my '01 Grand Cherokee...I do 4k OCI and I get it at Sam's for about 2 bucks a QT so u did good!!!

It is Korean base oil from what I understand, but still like the fact it has some GPIII blended in none the less
Ok, so I just knew that it would be gone if I waited until tomorrow. So I went back and cleaned out the stash of another 22 quarts for a total of 41 or so. I guess I'm set for a while.... I've got quite a stash going with Rotella (bikes), Delo (bikes), Brad Penn (bikes), Pennzoil YB, some Napa and now the Trop Artic... Now I just gotta start using this stuff. I hope there's no fires in my garage.....
