I can't provide my source but there may or may not be truth to this statement wink


I'm having a hard time believing that the lowest base stock that Valvoline uses is Group III. If so, why don't they label all of their oils synthetic?


because it isn't 100% group III


But if the lowest base stock that Valvoline uses in any of their oils is GrpIII, then the rest would have to be Grp's IV & V, which would definitely make the oil synthetic.

For those of us in Canada, tonight, I saw Valvoline NetGen at Walmart. Its regular price is $3 cheaper per five litre jug than any other conventional five litre jug on the shelf, including VWB. By the litre bottle, it's about $1.50 cheaper per litre.

Is Valvoline going to make a NextGen diesel-specific oil? My VIOC guy says it's coming, no sign of it yet?

I have't received mine yet--been checking inbox and junk mail daily. I'll be looking especially closely now. Is there a return site to Valvoline to contact if mine doesn't come?

I think you (and I) are just prisoners of the market. While they said it's available in Canada, I have yet to see it. We're always behind the curve in that kind of thing anyway. I finally found Defy, and Nextgen shouldn't be too far behind, or I'm simply not looking hard enough.

It's on the shelf at the Vic East Wal*Mart.

Yep! Coincidentally, I mentioned in another thread I had found it, and that's where it was. And, it's cheaper than VWB and all the other regularly priced conventionals there (other than Super Tech, I suppose).

I mailed in my rebate form for 5 qts NextGen on June 1. It is not noted in the Valvoline tracker site. Other rebates have been returned in 2 weeks--this over a month. The cash rebate of up to $30. The lady I talked to at the tracker site knew nothing about this rebate. I had her pull up the NextGen Q & A site on BITOG and she knew nothing about it. Has anyone else had trouble getting the rebate?

Yes, I had a lot of trouble. I submitted my 30.00 rebate 7 weeks ago. Just got it, but not for the correct amount. They only sent me back 15.00 and said I had multiple submissions. I said, how so? She said you submitted 2 15.00 5 quart jugs in on the rebate. I said okay, and your point? My truck uses more than 6 quarts of oil, so I bought two 5 quart jugs since that is what they had left. Needless to say, this conversation went no where, and I got 15.00. I am done with mail in rebates. It is too much of a hassle...

I hope you get yours though.

Thank you for your reply. I'm going to call in a week to see if some knows of the rebate. The lady I talked to, as I mentioned, knew nothing about it. Did you contact Vavoline thru the Tracker site phone number at the bottom of the rebate page?
