I have a chance to buy the 15w40 RP diesel oil in gallon jugs for $9.50/ea. I know many here don't care for RP. Should I or not?

Do it! You can probably use it in your KLR250!

Unless my math is wrong........$9.50/4qts = $2.375 per quart. Pretty good buy I'd say. Your 87 F250 could use it also.

For that price, why not?
The RP diesel oil is good stuff from what I've read and the price is that of any no-name diesel oil.
Sounds like a deal to me.

Donny would buy it for sure.
Seems like a good price to me.

I would not pay $3.99 for RP. Ever since it was spun off UnoCal when it was their premier oil back in the 1970's, it has steadily gone downhill frown

If it is a good price and you can use it, then yes I would buy it.

PQIA tested some PCMO 5W20 oils recently and the Royal Purple did well, it had the lowest Noack volatility of the whole group. I know this is a different oil, but it shows RP still knows how to formulate a good oil.

Unocal's premier oil was Royal Triton. No connection whatsoever with Royal Purple, other than the color.

That's a great deal! Unless I'm mistaken, there aren't many full syn 15W40s on the market, & if the RP diesel oil still has Synerlec (as it used to), it's some really good oil.

A RP rep told me they start with Mobil1 stock. I don't know if that goes for their diesel products.

If it's in line with good oils on sale I'd go for it. How can you lose?
