540Rat has the best oil advice in my opinion.  I have switched to Mobil 1 0W40 as a result of his recommendation s.

He is the only one that uses science to rate the oils.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

I just spent $200 in the last 2 weeks on oil.  I was thinking of Mobil 1 because of the success my buddy had with his little 2 Liter Turbo.  That motor is solid!  I will probably change it next year.

All the fancy oil is $10-$15/ liter.  With my big pan and big cooler my car takes close to 8 liters, then add tax to that!  Stupid tax!!!

Walmart has five quarts for $23 (Mobil 1)  That's about 4.75 L

Valvoline full synthetic 5-30 is $26 for five quarts.

Wallyworld is the place to buy oil today

I agree.  That's where I buy my oil, and about the only reason why I set foot in there!

I hate those 4.75L ones! :icon_smile:   My truck takes 5 L right on the money.  So I buy the 5 L jug of Pennzoil Full Synthetic 5w30 on sale for $33 cdn, that works out to $22 your price but then of course we have an enviro charge and taxes.

How much is 4.4L? is it like the 5 quart jugs we get "down here"?




Wow, they sure make that conversion confusing.
