They do the same thing with their 400LE product, it isn't a blend (that I'm aware of) or a synthetic however Chevron markets it as a rival to synthetic motor oils. I'm not a fan of that marketing at all.

Still less than fifty bucks to change the oil in the driveway. Hardly enough to bankrupt anyone buying a new truck. With a sump capacity of 8.5 qts, I'd go by the OLM without a doubt, so cost per mile would be pretty low. German car owners have had

I can understand this. An inexpensive but decent bulk oil will run around two bucks a quart and a white box filter would be around a buck, so you've got twelve dollars in materials alone. You then have the wages paid the tech, which even on fifteen m
