WOW, is that in the ad?

I've never seen Full Syn Harvest King 5-qt jugs THAT cheap.

The conventional oils can go that low pretty often

I'll have to swing by my Atwoods later today and check it out. Last time I stopped by, there RK was only a hair cheaper than the M1 products they had. Also, interestingly I found that they had Amsoil on the shelf. Just the 10W-30, but I thought that since Atwoods has more than 10 or so stores that they couldn't stock Amsoil products?

Its CONVENTIONAL - https://www.adserts-web.com/flipbooks/atwoods/flipbooks/0920Flipbook/index.html#p=16

good price still, for conv.

the full-syn is $11.99 reg price, but goes to $9.99 often on sale (bottle looks 'similar' - http://www.atwoods.com/ta-oil-fluid-lube/harvest-king-10w30-full-synthetic-motor-oil-5-qt.htm

Never heard of the store, but that is a good deal for conventional. I is ~$1.40/qt at that price.

The syn for $9.99 is a great deal. @ $11.99 regular price is a real good deal.

Looks like Atwoods is primarily an Oklahoma store, with some stores in surrounding states. The closest to me are in Waco and another in Nacogdoches, both right about 170 miles away.

$9.99 is the new daily price, no sales involved for the Harvest King synthetics (except the 5W-40). When you get the 12% sales it's $8.79/5 qts full synthetic Dexos1 certified.

Add packs aren't anything to write home about, but if you're not stretching OCIs past 6-7.5k it should do the job perfectly well.

Yeah, I would not think it is anything special, probably on par with other "store brand" synthetics like Supertech or STP.
Probably better protection than most conventional oils for a regular OCI.

I see they also have some HK 15w-40 for $11 for 2 gallons. Wonder if that stuff is any good for a motorcycle.
