What is your plan to use all that up? 250 oil changes worth?

I'm out of stash. I hardly ever see clearance sales and I check a lot.

1 wix filter for Buick
2 x Fram XG 3980
4 quarts of Mobil 1 TDT 5w40 bought on clearance $2 each
1 new oem fuel filter for each car



I've got to see pics of the 1,000 quart stash.

Nothing really.

Just 1 gallon of Pentosin + 1 gallon of 5w-50 Schaeffer oil for diesel. Quality VW 505-compliant oil is hard to find so I pre-order it.

I think just 1/2 quart of valvoline next gen 10w30.

If nothing is on sale when you need it, is that a good reason to do longer ocis?

Can I ask you guys that have massive stashes what exactly the point is? I don't have a stash, although I do wish I had maybe one shelf with some variety at all times, but what on Earth do you do with *hundreds* of quarts of oil? How can you possibly even use all of it? I mean even if you could, the API rating would be like SY by the time you were that deep into your then old SN stock and the year would be 2076.

Some people have quite the car collection, and more cars = more oil changes.

A huge stash provides better satisfaction than any other human experience, bar none. There are BITOG guys who would rather stick to their stash than spend a thousand nights with the most beautiful women in the world.

I hope that answers your question.

When doing fleet management, I had case upon case of Quaker State. Each car got an oil change (5 litres) per month, so you could tear through a lot of oil. Others (including myself these days) are simply nuts. wink

I maintain 6 vehicles. 4 of my own (self, wife, teenage daughter + van we travel in), plus adult daughters car, plus Mother-in-laws car. Also two riding mowers and a chainsaw.

Going 5 qt. at a time, my 170 I got for $1 each will use up in just few years.
