Around here it's a tie with Mobil 1 frequently being as cheap or better. I have no brand loyalty at all as long as it has the certification for my fleet vehicles under the 100k mile warranty!

I'd probably stick with M1 or QSUD unless I was ignoring the OLM and doing 5K OCI's.

Napa Synthetic. Well, I don't quite know if it has an official license, but it meets the specs per the bottle. $3.99 a quart on sale.

Quaker State Ultimate Durability here runs around $20.00 for the 5 quart jug at Wal-Mart.

Have had no issues with it. Wife and I use their 5W20 year around and we see long hot Summers here in the deep south.

Around me, QSUD 5w-30 when on sale at Advance for $20/5 quarts and a filter. Havoline full synthetic 5w-30 is also sometimes on sale for $20/5 quarts with a filter. Sometimes the Advance will run out of Havoline and substitute QSUD, M1, or PP. YMMV on that one!

Some time back Amazon had a Warren brand 6 quart pack for $20.80. Forget if it was Peak or Accell. May be worth watching them.

If your lowes still has peak full syn on clearance, the 5 qt jugs are just shy of $14 and have the dexos approval.

QSUD usually, but recently I was able to score some AcDelco DEXOS syn. blend and a PF457G filter for $26.00, three bucks cheaper than QSUD and same filter. Will probably use the UD again for the Delco oil is rarely on sale. I must add that I purchased from a wholeseller of AcDelco and Motorcraft supplies.

Is NAPA synthetic Dexos-approved? It can be had for $3.49/qt, and we know it's just relabeled Valvoline SynPower.
