You win! Cheers2


55 gallons isn't really all that much when your oil changes take 10 gallons each. thumbsup





How true that is! Yeah, it just looks impressive from a volume standpoint, but when you have the perspective of how it is used, the dynamics change. And that's right... at 10 gallons an oil change, 55 gallons is like someone else having a couple of cases of oil for their pickup.

I have maybe eight quarts of SM M1 0W-40 that will be used for spring time oil changes(mixed with M1 EP 5W-20 I'm yet to buy)... Also around 10 quarts of 10W-40 QS Defy for the older stuff and I think four gal of Rotella 10W-30 for the ones I beat on...

There are no doubt a odd quart, or two, or three etc in the garage as well, I don't keep up with actual numbers...

The other thing that I do on a regular basis is "share" my good fortune with others so there are some donations that happen from my stash as well.

Well said 2010_FX4!! My thoughts exactly. Although I still currently have over 250 quarts of various brands, I have donated well over 100 quarts as well. And I too was bitten by the BITOG bug just a couple of years ago (2011)! I can only imagine what my garage would look like if I had caught it years earlier.

Now after getting 4-jugs of VWB from a co-worker at our Holiday gift exchange.... my Valvoline stock is pretty stout. If it garners a good 5k mile UOA, i'll be exchanging the Synpower for the VWB at my local WM.

I haven't given mobil oils a chance yet, pre BITOG I only used Castrol and supertech, since I joined I haven run across a MOBIL oil sale so my current stash of 120+ quarts contains 5 brands but no MOBIL yet, I'm sure that will change. Mobil 1 one of the more popular oils so you don't see it on sale often.

At 25 a jug and you want a sale.
If I could get 0w-40 for 25 a jug like you guys can I'd spend a roll on the stuff.
I found PU for 28 a jugs(now its 70)and bought 14 of them. I found qsud for 21 a jug and bought 10 then pp for 22 so I grabbed 10 more.
Typically Canadian engine oil prices are double the American price.
Garak is right. For the best everyday price a distributor is the best way to go.
