A lot of the oil sticks to the inside of the bottle -- that's why I'd rather have just one 5 quart bottle to drain from for an hour.

I prefer quarts. My truck has a 7 quart capacity what I try to do is stock up for a couple of years when I can find a sale for quarts.

But if I can not find a sale or using the Pennzoil distributor in Phoenix is not worth the drive. I will break down and go to Wal-mart and buy 2, 5 quart jugs and two individual quarts. So I can change the oil in the truck and for the wife's car that has a 4.5 quart capacity.

The jugs generally come with an attitude, like every engine out there desires them.

Now the pints, the pints and quarts are more appreciative, they try harder, and they age better.

Thats a joke correct?

However I have seen the addative package settle to the bottom of the jugs and you would need to give them a shake.

Personally I think there is no difference between the Jugs or the Quarts other then the price.

I belive the oil companies put a lesser quality oil in the quarts!

I like quarts better. Especially when they're on sale in an oil change special, which is the only time I buy oil anyway. OTOH if I had to buy oil that wasn't on sale, then I'd go to Walmart and grab a 5 qt. jug.

As far as the quality of the product, the oil in a qt. or a jug is exactly the same. The only difference is how its package.

Jugs are great for changes and give you a handy container for the used oil.
Quarts are much handier for adds, although I have done adds with a jug with no funnel and no mess.
Either container size is fine by me, although jugs are typically a much better buy than quarts.

I prefer quarts, but buy jugs because of the price.

I understand completely.helping my dad change oil was one of the first car maintainance things I learned.Getting the spout in just right so oil did noy run down the side of the old cardboard qts was my job.
I prefer qts myself but will use both.It takes a little longer useing qts but I am never in a hurry doing an oil change.
New cars now dont require much diy upkeep so boys growing up for the most part dont know much about cars
Now if they want mors hp they just change a chip.
I had to change the cam,intake and carb,add headers,change the curve in the dist. Etc
Thats why about all kids can do now is put big wheels and tires on their cars and crank up the bass

Had to grin at this one. I am old enough to remember changing the oil on my cars using the metal spout on the oil cans for oil changes. My how time have changed, and for the better as far as oil changes.
