Limit 6. The bottles on the picture are 10w30, I hope they sell 5w30 too. Do they?

oh yes yes. I been waiting for that one. I bought chevron 5w30 from costco 01/2011 with the coupon. It was only $1.83/qt..

I think costco sell 12qt case for $29.99. with the $9 coupon, It is only $1.73/qt.

I will buy 1 case when I get my costco coupon.. by the way chevron motor oil is excellent.

Coupon says : " $9.00 off limit 6 " ...I assume they mean $9.00 off of a case (12 bottles ?) and buy limit of 6 cases ?

Here is the picture of the ad. I assume it is for all grades since it has multiple item numbers listed.

So, how long can this oil be on the shelf without it breaking down or interacting with the plastic container at all? No sunlight will be on plastic bottles. I'v heard 5 years is a safe bet. I know oil needs to be changed in an engine even if it's not being driven much, but that is a different situation..

Might get 2 or more cases for my car, I've heard nothing but good things about it.
I've been using the ten doubleU thirty in a '99 Civic DX

Oh, I noticed in that pdf link in post#5 that the %zinc is only 8.5% for the 'SN' Chevron Supreme. I remember reading that the 'SM' was 11%, which is the minimum amount needed to protect an engine? Maybe I have that value wrong. But I also remember that SN rated oils tend to have less zinc in them due to emissions requirements..

Link to 1 page that says .11%..doesn't say what formula it refers [url=tohttp://www.oregonccca.com/T-001%20Engine%20Oils.htm][url=tohttp://www.oregonccca.com/T-001%20Engine%20Oils.htm][url=tohttp://www.oregonccca.com/T-001%20Engine%20Oils.htm]tohttp://www.oregonccca.com/T-001%20Engine%20Oils.htm[/url][/url][/url]

Wow 3400 miles/month, it takes me 6 months to rack up 3k miles. what is your OCI if you are doing 3400 miles/month?

SM oils had an average of .087% of Zinc, CS SN has .085%. If you had .11% you would destroy your catalytic converter, modern engines don't need that much zinc. If you really want zinc you can buy the additive but it's not recommended for catalytic converters it's more for classic cars. http://www.motorheadoil.com/

grinNext weekend I'll be picking up six cases of CS 5w30 at Costco because; thanks to this site I'm now an oil hoarder, CS is the best dino oil IMO, $1.75qt is a great price and oil isn't getting any cheaper. You usually don't see dino for less than $1.99qt anymore.

my driving is 98% highway, never exceed 65 mph, and use cruise control..

my OCI is 5000 miles. I am pretty sure I can go 8000 miles OCI with the any dino oil.

chevron supreme is only $1.75 /qt. I do my own oil change. so it is cheap.

Got my Costco coupon booklet yesterday... I feel a little embarrassed to say that I got really excited over this coupon! CS is really a great oil.. especially at 1.75/qt!
