Looking for some 0w-20 for my 2012 Lancer. Found the Advance Auto Parts brand for only $5.49 a quart! Can't seem to find any reviews on the forum or on the web though.

That's not that good of a deal for a store brand. That's more expensive than most name brands at walmart.

Made by WPP, its a good oil but not for that price.

No experience with AAP oil, but that's no bargain -- you can get Amsoil OE 0w20 for $4.70 a quart.

Haven't used it, but it seems expensive for generic 0w20.
The new Mazda with moly(221 VI) and TGMO 0w20 (216) would definitely be tops in 0w20.
Normally found at very reasonable prices for what you are getting.

Hi Kuato,

What store has that price? Thanks!

I have tried my local walmart and the only 0w20 they carry is the mobile 1. I'll keep looking though!

That's not some kind of good deal.
M1 0w-20 can be had for 25 a jug and as per the posted used oil analysis here it's a long drain capable oil.
Personally I'd pay the extra few bucks for the M1 and run it 15000 miles which will actually cost less per mile.
Aap oil has little to no data posted here therefore I'd have to get a used oil analysis done to establish a prudent oci which adds to the cost of the product whereas the M1 has many used oil analysis posted here so one can use the data posted here to make an informed oci decision thereby actually incurring less out of pocket expense.
I'm no fan of Mobil whatsoever however at 25 a jug at wal-mart it's very tough to beat once you factor in its typical long drain ability and ease of access.
