2-5 quart jugs of M1 0w40
3-5 quart jugs of M1 0w20
21 quarts GC
8-10 quarts Valvoline Synthetic 10w30 Racing (Going into Ruckus)

I'm outta oil for my truck. I'm using my stash of Napa 15w40 for my brother's Tiara this winter....that has twin 454's (4 gallons). But right now I'm just feeding her used oil out of my Honda and Nissan. LOL!!

I have 4-6 oil filters, 2 air filters, and 1 fuel filter for each of my vehicles. All of them are Napa Golds....expect for the Honda, it gets Platinum oil filters.

I think I have 3 bottles of Lubegard Biotech left, 3 bottles of Lubegard Red Tranny juice, 2 bottles of Torco MPZ (the crazy stuff!!), and 4-6 bottles of LM MOS2.

I've been doing pretty good and I'm down to about 60 quarts.

Lots of Maxlife since we've got two cars on it, some FAR Nextgen left yet and a Wally's 5 buck off jug, misc clearance Nextgen quarts also in the mix.

6 Quarts Trop Artic 10w30 at $1.99
6 quarts PP 5w20 O'Reilly's smoking $2.57 a quart clearance
1 gallon jug of PYB 10w30 left from the Kmart clearance bonanza
12 quarts of Edge bought on AAP's BOGO from last winter, GC0w30 and some 5w40.

Not waiting till you have to have it means you can hold out for good deals. Learning not to overbuy when the deal comes is the trick that's hard to learn.

Right now.
3 dino changes for the Tracker
1 syn change for the Tracker
1 dino changes for the Focus
3 syn changes for the Focus

So a little under 40L of motor oil and ~15L of tractor fluid.
I need to find a good sale on RT6 to get 12L for the tractor and the ATV as then need to be done soon, and quit buying oil for the cars as I'm 2 years ahead.

3qt Autozone Syn
1qt Mason Jar "Special" mix of left over jugs (mostly Havoline HM).

Can you tell I get the five 1qt bottles for the same price as a jug and keep the spare on hand as the Fit and MR2 only use 4qts (or less). Subbie has a capacity of 4.8 so that is why I have a mason jar with "new oil" written on it.

I also have a small stash of ATF and brake fluid too wink

Did I see that correctly? 1000 quarts of oil?

Even if you paid $1 for each one, that's $1,000 of cash tied up in inventory. Do you have an expected ROI on that stash?

If they were all FAR, then I'd see no problem in that size of a stash. Personally, my limit would be <= $0.25 a quart to have any amount of cash tied up in oil.

Wow, I thought mine was mindblowing (see sig file.)

His ROI is that he won't have to run out and pay 30 bucks for 5 quarts of oil these days "on sale". shoot UFO

I cleaned out three convenience stores changing ownership. I got over 170 qts. total, for $1 each. Mostly Mobil 5000 and PYB, with the occasional Gilco and Castrol mixed in. BTW, I got 30 or so Regane PEA gas additives and 5 brake fluids for 0.25c each!

Ironically, before I was the most non-hoarder ever, LOL.

Let's see....
1/2 4L jug of Petro-Canada Duron Synthetic 0w30 & 5L jug of PP 5w20, minus the 0.7L I put in for the last OCI. An oil & air filter for the G6.

Not in fear of being labeled an oil hoarder here!

Best thing this was accomplished in about 3 hours, total. No mail in rebates to mess with, no time consuming multiple shopping trips, etc.

3 transactions, less than 3 hours total, DONE.

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.

I have about a gallon of Rotella 15W-40 left over from changing the oil on 4 tractors-I'll keep it for top off oil in the event that I need it over the next year or so. I also have about 1/2 gallon of combined leftover oil from the oil changes on 4 vehicles. Again, just in case I need to top something off I'll keep it around until the next oil change.

At the next oil changes I'll dump these leftovers in with the used oil and toss it on the fire the next time I burn yard waste.

I don't keep a large "stash" of oil or fluids. If I want to invest in oil, I'll do so through an energy related mutual fund where I'll get a far better return on my money.

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.

First of all it is important to note that oil really has no shelf life. Blackstone has tested oils from the 1960s that still retained the additive packs and so if SN oil remains on the shelf for 10 years I personally do not see this as an issue (in my case it would not be there that long though). Speaking for myself, nearly all of the oil that I have cost less than 70% of the full retail price with some of it being FAR (the Spirax was not, but that is a different story). So in essence, I save money in the long run by buying oil when it is cheap or free. I have only started this in the past year or so but have built up my stash very quickly. 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.

If we got the deep discounts and FAR deals that can be had south of the border, I would likely have to reconsider my stash stance. As it is right now it's not difficult for me to plan in advance and purchase sales for the next OCIs.

Keep in mind the most beautiful women are a lot more maintenance over the course of 1000 nights which even an unlimited oil stash can't solve.

Really? I have exactly one spare quart of GTX, which is what I call my "extra oil". If I had three or four jugs on-hand I would definitely consider that to be my stash. A mere pittance compared to some of you guys, but still a stash if you ask me.

i bought 30 quarts of oil on black friday weekend and 40 quarts for my dad. i had a stash of probably more than 40 quarts already. i've got quaker state, castrol gtx, pennzoil, peak synthetic, and shell. i'll probably stop buying next year because the price/rebate goes up $1-2 every year.

I have enough oil to last both of our cars for over a year. Between my wifes car being driven 35-40k and mine 17-20k, I'd say I have a stash. Not as much as some of you, but it's a stash nonetheless.

I bet anyone stumbling on this site will be flabbergasted to find anyone has an "oil stash," LOL.

But yeah, I am stocking up on Pennzoil Ultra 5W30 while I still can. I currently have 3 5QT jugs and 1 QT jug, but I'll be getting 2 more of the former and a 6 QT case of the latter within the next few weeks. It's a few years' worth of oil changes, but it's worth it to me because it's getting harder to find and I am going to be starting my own business at the first of the year, and I won't have as much disposable income to pay premium prices for it if folks don't start stocking it. This way, I get oil changes to roughly 40,000 miles for $21 per (price for the dealership to do the work and provide the filter). That should last me 3-4 years or so.

The 6 QT case will give me some extra to top off with in addition to rounding out the extra 3/4 quart above 5 quarts for each oil change.

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.

I have to give Canadian Tire a backhanded compliment, though, with their latest QSGB special. The did have enough stock scattered throughout the store that there was plenty to buy, if I were so inclined. Their main QS shelf was an absolute joke, though. I have a picture I'll have to download and post. There was one column of oil for 5w-30, and about four or so for 5w-20, and about five or so for 10w-30. Of course, the 5w-30 was cleaned out, because that's a commonly used grade. 5w-20 is used, but they had plenty of shelf space for it. They had enough 10w-30 to choke a horse, though. 10w-30 isn't on the top of my shopping list for Saskatchewan winters (or summers, for that matter), and no one specifies the stuff anyway.
